You cannot use indirect mounting and enablemkhomedir at the same time.  Indirect mounts require

no one other than autofs can create directories in the top-level of /home on your clients 
(/home/<user> is a different story).

So you either need to pre-create the home directories on your NFS server (including 
ownership, permissions, and any "skel" stuff you want in there like a default 
.bashrc) or you need to direct mount /home altogether and lose the benefits of indirect 
mounting (which may not matter to you).

So this means I can either use /home mounted as NFS share conventionally (without autofs) in combination with mkhomedir or use autofs magic with pre-created directories.

As my users come from AD I do not even know which directories would have to be created in advance. So I will have to go for option 1.
