Angry NIS domain name losts after every reboot

One Redhat EL5 NIS client machine, every time it restarts, can not be login in with the NIS account.

Test 1: domainname
EERRO: domainname is not set!
However, the /etc/yp.conf file is fine. Use nisdomainname set the NIS server again, the NIS client machine could login.

I can not find what causes the problem.

/etc/defaultdomain is the traditional place to hold that definition - but not sure if that applies in RHEL5.
