I did this. Now my ipa automountlocation-tofiles default shows,

*/-      /etc/*
*/share  /etc/auto.share*
*/home   /etc/auto.home*
** -rw,sec=krb5,soft,rsize=8192,wsize=8192*

Also my /etc/export looks like this,

*/xtra/home  *(rw,fsid=0,insecure,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check)*
*/xtra/home  gss/krb5(rw,fsid=0,insecure,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check)*
*/xtra/home  gss/krb5i(rw,fsid=0,insecure,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check)*
*/xtra/home  gss/krb5p(rw,fsid=0,insecure,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check)*

Still it is not working. I tested to login from the server(as I don't have another test machine with IPA, I added mkhomedir line in the pam files to test in this machine only). It is NOT mounting the NFS home partition from the remote NFS server. Instead it is creating /home/USER on the local partition. Now if you think this is some problem due to testing from IPA server, I will install IPA client on a new machine with mkhomedir switch and try to test from there.
Please suggest.

Thanks and regards,

   A simple test,   change the automount map to just mount /home
   completely, and then create a new user.  I'm guessing that will
   work.  Basically

   */home       -rw,sec=krb5,soft,rsize=8192,wsize=8192*
