Default fqdn hostname fails after reboot

Hi,

I have several machines running CentOS 6.2 and a strange problem with
the hostname of one machine... After every reboot it loses the fqdn
hostname.

Here is my confguration:

ifconfig | grep "inet addr"
inet addr:10.0.0.12 Bcast:10.0.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0

/etc/sysconfig/network

NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=x800.mydomain.local
GATEWAY=10.0.0.1

127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6
10.0.0.12 x800.mydomain.local x800

... after a reboot:

hostname
x800.mydomain.local < OK

hostname -f
hostname: Unknown host < NOT OK

dnsdomainname
dnsdomainname: Unknown host < NOT OK

If I set the hostname manually:

hostname x800.mydomain.local

hostname -f
x800.mydomain.local < OK

dnsdomainname
mydomain.local < OK

Everything is okay ...

Something I've never experienced before. Does anyone have an idea?

thx
