Lets try to isolate it a little further. If you log in to that machine
as root, and then do su - nasir, does it let you create the directory or
give you the same error? I'm guessing it is ssh that is complaining
here. If the mount point is set up correctly, you should be able to
crete and chown the /home/nasir directory, either via odd job, or just
test it as root.
What I am guessing is happening here is that ssh is not triggereing the
odd job creation of the home directory. Either that, or this particular
IPA client was run without the switch to create the home-dir. If
Automount is commented out, does the /home/nasir directory get created
on the local disk?

No! it allows auto mount that pre created home folder *ONLY to the

it automatically mounts while login to NFS server ( ssh -l nasir

machine ( ssh -l nasir ANY_IPA_MACHINE) it gives the following error,

So it is not working right ? Hope it is clear to you now.
Thanks and regards,
If I manually create one home folder( e.g */xtra/home/abc* )
under than, then I can mount it, but nothing can be written to it
by the user as it gives permission denied error.
Yes, but it should allow the root user to create and chown the
directory, so the autocreation of home dirs should work.
