Hi all,
I'm trying to setup this scenario on NFS and autofs on Centos 4.3:
- useradd nfstest on an NFS server (192.168.1.247) 
- Setting up this NFS server /etc/exports:
/home/nfstest   192.168.1.252/255.255.255.0(rw,sync,no_root_squash)

- useradd nfstest on a client machine (192.168.1.252)
- make sure that the uid and gid are the same on the server and the client
- setting up /etc/auto.master:
/home/nfstest   /etc/auto.nfs   --timeout=60
- setting up /etc/auto.nfs:
* -rw,soft,intr 192.168.1.247:/home/&

- Restarting portmap, nfs, nfslock on the server
- Restarting autofs on the client

- showmount -e localhost:
/home/nfstest 192.168.1.252/255.255.255.0

- Try to logon using username on the client: nfstest

But I've got this error:

automount[5937]: >> mount: 192.168.1.247:/home/.bash_profile failed, reason 
given by server: Permission denied
automount[5937]: mount(nfs): nfs: mount failure 
192.168.1.247:/home/.bash_profile on /home/nfstest/.bash_profile
automount[5937]: failed to mount /home/nfstest/.bash_profile
automount[5939]: >> mount: 192.168.1.247:/home/.bash_login failed, reason 
given by server: Permission denied
automount[5939]: mount(nfs): nfs: mount failure 
192.168.1.247:/home/.bash_login on /home/nfstest/.bash_login
automount[5939]: failed to mount /home/nfstest/.bash_login
automount[5941]: >> mount: 192.168.1.247:/home/.profile failed, reason given 
by server: Permission denied

And on the login screen shows only this:
-bash-3.00$

Oh by the way, firewall is off.

Am I missing something?
Thank you very much,
