    this is how i did it

    my nfs exports looks like this on my ldap server -

    /ldap *(rw,async,insecure,nohide,no_subtree_check,no_roo t_squash)

    then on my mac i mounted it like this -

    applications > utilities > disk utility > file > nfs mounts - create the mount point here

    then i made the authentication to my ldap server on my mac -

    system preferences > accounts > login options > under "display login window as" click option "name and password" > click "join" network account server > open directory utility > double click "LDAPv3" > new > manual

    fill in the relevant boxes but under "LDAP Mappings" choose "RFC 2307 (Unix)" > type in your search base suffix ie - dc=domain,dc=local

    click ok and go back

    click "search policy" > "authentication" > search > "custom path" > + > add your ldap server

    click apply

    you may need to restart but it now is working
