You kinda lost me here, so I may be misunderstanding your question. But here goes....

If you want clientsystem to automatically mount directories then clientsystem must have the automounter running. The serversystem must have exported, or to use Sun's language, shared the stuff to be mounted. It is not relevant if serversystem is running the automounter, but it needs the NFS server daemons.

NIS and NIS+ are not required. But the user is then in local passwd and shadow files and needs to enter a password if you gave him one. Once he signs on he gets a uid and several gid's. These control what files he can access. This includes his home directory even if it is automounted. So the user will need an identical account on serversystem and this account will need to own the home directory.

SHOWMOUNT(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 					      SHOWMOUNT(8)

NAME
showmount -- show remote nfs mounts on host SYNOPSIS
showmount [-a | -d] [-e] [-1] [-3] [host] DESCRIPTION
The showmount utility shows status information about the NFS server on host. By default it prints the names of all hosts that have NFS file systems mounted on the host. See NFS: Network File System Protocol Specification, RFC 1094, Appendix A, and NFS: Network File System Version 3 Protocol Specification, Appendix I, for a detailed description of the protocol. The following options are available: -a List all mount points in the form: host:dirpath. -d List directory paths of mount points instead of hosts. -e Show the host's exports list. -1 Use mount protocol Version 1, compatible with legacy servers. -3 Ignored for backwards compatibility. SEE ALSO
mount(8), mount_nfs(8), mountd(8) HISTORY
The showmount utility first appeared in 4.4BSD. BUGS
The mount daemon running on the server only has an idea of the actual mounts, since the NFS server is stateless. The showmount utility will only display the information as accurately as the mount daemon reports it. BSD
