I have the home directory of a user on an nfs server and mount it on a client. When the user logs in, they end up in the root directory rather than in their actual home directory and need to cd into it.
The user can read and write to their home directory, so it kinda works fine — but only kinda. When the user starts emacs, some of the settings in ~/.emacs are not applied, but the saved desktop is being loaded.
Both machines are running CentOS 7.4. What could be wrong with the nfs mount?
