Problem

Install with @Base and @Core, plus ypbind and autofs. But once configured, the computer can't mount home directores:

[root@dhcp-10-17-13-162 ~]# uptime
 13:20:36 up 1 min,  1 user,  load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
[root@dhcp-10-17-13-162 ~]# su - dmackintosh
su: warning: cannot change directory to /home/dmackintosh: No such file or directory

Solution

The magic seems to be somewhere in the NFS File Server group. The automounter works after you yum install nfs-utils. This seems to pull in other dependancies (listed below); one of them has to be the magic one.

[root@dhcp-10-17-13-162 ~]# rpm -qa | sort | uniq > rpm.after
[root@dhcp-10-17-13-162 ~]# diff rpm*

< keyutils-1.4-4.el6.x86_64

< libevent-1.4.13-4.el6.x86_64

< nfs-utils-1.2.3-39.el6.x86_64
< nfs-utils-lib-1.1.5-6.el6.x86_64

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
