Thanks for the reply!
Selinux is disabled! Actually disabling selinux is "mandatory 
post-installation" step for me :-)

Thanks and regards,Nasir

Hi,

Kind of a wild shot, but what mode is selinux in?

I find if its enforcing all sorts of things pop up not working on occasion....

regards

Thanks for the reply Rob ! I had tried with all the log files you mentioned and 
had kept most of them in debug mode. Tried again now. The only error or clue I 
could see was the following I already mentioned in my previous mail,

oddjob-mkhomedir[17823]: error setting permissions on /home/nasir: Operation 
not permitted

I don't think it is a problem due to autofs as this is the error when I am 
getting while trying to login after MANUALLY MOUTING this partition also! There 
is some permission blocking oddjob from creating the home folder on the fly. I 
can't see any debug option for /etc/oddjobd.conf file to go further.

Please help.

Thanks and regards,
Nidal
