When I have changed Domain in /etc/idmapd.conf and then service idmapd restart, then the change doesn't take effect until I reboot.

Is it possible to do this without having to rebooting the host?

I have the problem on CentOS 6.

    On CentOS 6 it's service rpcidmapd – user9517 Jul 29 '13 at 16:10

    or 'nfsidmap -c' to clean up kernel cache – kofemann Jul 30 '13 at 12:24

service is responsible for that is: rpc.idmapd - NFSv4 ID <-> Name Mapper and to restart it you should be using:

service rpcidmapd status

The fix may require less than this, but this should work:

service rpcbind restart
service rpcidmapd restart
service nfslock restart
service netfs restart
service nfs restart
