In my case the IP is configured via
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0
using the IPADDR variable.
BTW: I used the graphical tool to enter the information, but it made
a mess of the netmask (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=475419).
I corrected this by editing the ifcfg-eth0 file directly.

I added two lines at the end (these are the only non-comment lines):

domain xxxxxxxx server xxx.xxx.gov
domain xxxxxxxx server xxx.xxx.gov

> Do you have NISDOMAIN set in /etc/sysconfig/network?

Yes, that's the one line I added to that file:

NISDOMAIN=xxxxxxxx

I.e. it looks just like your file.

OK, that's different, but I don't want to experiment anymore now that it
is working. I don't need NetworkManager. The machine is part of a
cluster and never moved around (I gather NetworkManager helps if you
move between networks a lot.)
