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

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.
