I didn't know it was only possible to create home on the home nfs server :)
I changed my implementation on home nfs server to make a flat /home
directory (not mounted with autofs from an other directory of the same
2) is now solved: I disabled autofs on the home nfs server, moved files and
mkhomedir now works perfectly.
1) the issue seems to be solved after this, but not instantaneously. I
still see errors on NFS server logs:
WARNING: can't create tcp rpc_clnt to server <ipa-server> for user
with uid 0: RPC: Remote system error - No route to host
but it seems to be working. After creating a new user, I had to wait a few
seconds/minutes for home to be fetchable by autofs.
Thanks a lot.
