Thank you for your reply to my incompetent query.

Okay, I'm a bit dyslectic.  I see that I should have seen idmap but I 
saw imap.  I missed the "d".  That leads me to another question:

I don't see a package that contains idmapd.  When I try to install it I get:
No package idmapd available.
No package idmap available.

I don't see idmapd in the Service Configuration GUI.

rpm -qa | grep idmap

How might one install a daemon by the name idmapd on CentOS 6?
