I have a working NIS/NFS server environment here, with multiple servers. One is the NIS server, that works just fine with Lion. But I can't figure out how to get the auto home mounting working.

Do you guys have any hints, make this working?

You'll need an automount record for your Directory, and you'll need home folder location records for your users or groups. I think you'll need to modify your LDAP schema so that these two types of entries are named the way a Mac expects. Not my area of expertise unfortunately.
