Dunno if this is the way you should do it but...

When I had Suns with nis and wanted to get FQDN I added dns before nis in
the resolve part of nsswitch.conf (forgot where what name it has). That
solves the problem since most heimdal-krb5 lib does
gethostbyname(gethostname()) or equvialent.

Sorry if I can't be more exact, we turned off that last Sparc10 two month ago.
