Smile automount NFS shares


Hi,

I want to automount nfs home dir:
server:/myhome/nis1

to client as /users/nis1
auto.home
----------------
* -fstype=nfs,rw server:/myhome/&
auto.matser
------------------
/users /etc/auto.home -rw --timeout=300

But upon login I get the error : "Could not chdir to /myhome/nis1 No such file or dir"
I login as:
#ssh -l nis1 <client_ip_addr>

But if the home dir name is same(/myhome on both client & server) I am able to login with the proper home dir.

What is wrong?
