Could you please explain me what do you mean by 'You probably need rwx
permissions in /etc/export' ? This is my /etc/export file,
see the '(rw' in those lines? That indicates read and write privs,
but not execute.
I'm not an nfs guru, so I might be wrong. this post suggests that I am
SInce IPA is managing the IDs, they should be in sync across the NFS and
autmounted client machines, but there might be something not right in
the setup. if the IPA server isn't managing the machine that serves as
your NFS server, then the IDs are certainly going to be out of sync.
Also, I have configured a separate client machine (RHEL 6.1) and
configured it as NFS server (previously my NFS server was IPA server
itself) and the result is same. All the above commands are from this
client machine only.
Thanks indeed again!

It might be a root squash issue. My guess is that the order of
operations for creating a root directory, which is done by root, is:
1. mkdir /home/userid
2. chown uid:gid /home/userid
It sounds from the error message that the first stage happened,
but NFS is not allowing the second stage. To confirm, as a root
(and kinit admin) user on the client machine, just try these two
steps in order and see if they still fail.
chown is a different system call from mkdir, and might have
different nfs enforced permissions. You probably need rwx
permissions in /etc/export.
