[1] Configure NFS Client.
root@client:~#
apt-get -y install nfs-client
root@client:~#
vi /etc/idmapd.conf
# line 6: uncomment and change to your domain name

Domain =
srv.world
root@client:~#
mount -t nfs dlp.srv.world:/home /home

root@client:~#
df -hT

dlp.srv.world:/home   nfs4      140G  1.6G  131G   2% /home
# /home from NFS server is mounted
[2] Configure NFS mounting on fstab to mount it when the system boot.
root@client:~#
vi /etc/fstab
# add like follows

dlp.srv.world:/home   /home  nfs     defaults        0       0
[3] Configure auto-mounting.
For example, set NFS directory on /mntdir.
root@client:~#
apt-get -y install autofs
root@client:~#
vi /etc/auto.master
# add follows to the end

/-    /etc/auto.mount

root@client:~#
vi /etc/auto.mount
# create new : [mount point] [option] [location]

/mntdir -fstype=nfs,rw  dlp.srv.world:/home

root@client:~#
mkdir /mntdir

root@client:~#
systemctl restart autofs

# move to the mount point to make sure it normally mounted

root@client:~#
cd /mntdir

root@client:/mntdir#
