I'm running a nfs4 server exporting a directory /home (ext4,usrquota). This server is running Ubuntu 12.04 amd64(up-to-date). This directory is handling 662 homedirs for ldap authenticated users.
/etc/exports is :
/exports 192.168.0.0/24(rw,fsid=0,no_subtree_check)

Important lines in /etc/idmapd.conf :

In /etc/default/nfs-common :

In /etc/default/nfs-kernel-server :

2 Clients (rhel6 x86 & Ubuntu 12.04.2 i686) are mounting this nfs4 exported directory with no problems :
When doing ls -l /home on this clients, I have :

uid/gid mapping works fine, authldap works fine, ...

All Clients running Ubuntu 12.10 i686 or Ubuntu 12.10 amd64 are experiencing the same problem :
The config files are the same that used in ubuntu 12.04.
Auth ldap is correctly configured, user can log in.

This is the /etc/fstab entry for /home :
192.168.0.1:/ /home nfs rw,nfsvers=4 0 0

Important lines in /etc/idmapd.conf :
domain=my-domain.org
[Translation]
Method=nsswitch

In /etc/default/nfs-common :
NEED_IDMAPD=yes

/etc/nsswitch.conf is :
passwd: files ldap
group: files ldap
shadow: files ldap

When doing ls -l /home there is a strange problem :

drwx------ 4 4294967294 oldusers 4096 sept. 21 2011 user100
drwx------ 4 user101 oldusers 4096 sept. 21 2011 user101

for 571 homedirs (this number varies at each reboot)/662, the owner is the value 4294967294. For the 91 remaining homedirs,
the owner is correct. The gidnumber is correctly mapped for all (only 5 differents values used for gidNumber).

In /var/log/syslog, I can see :

For example : user110 is mapped as 4294967294.
but the command "id user110" returns :
uid=31124(user110) gid=666(oldusers) groupes=666(oldusers)

user110 logs in (auth ldap) from tty1. He runs "ls -l /home/user110/" :

drwxr-xr-x 8 4294967294 oldusers 4096 janv. 19 2012 Bureau
drwxr-xr-x 3 4294967294 oldusers 4096 déc. 2 2011 Documents
drwxr-xr-x 2 4294967294 oldusers 4096 déc. 2 2011 Images

Then, he runs "touch /home/user110/test" :

drwxr-xr-x 8 4294967294 oldusers 4096 janv. 19 2012 Bureau
drwxr-xr-x 3 4294967294 oldusers 4096 déc. 2 2011 Documents
drwxr-xr-x 2 4294967294 oldusers 4096 déc. 2 2011 Images
drwxr-xr-x 2 4294967294 oldusers 0 févr. 13 16:01 test

On the nfs server, If i do a ls -l in the same directory :

drwxr-xr-x 8 user110 oldusers 4096 janv. 19 2012 Bureau
drwxr-xr-x 3 user110 oldusers 4096 déc. 2 2011 Documents
drwxr-xr-x 2 user110 oldusers 4096 déc. 2 2011 Images
drwxr-xr-x 2 user110 oldusers 0 févr. 13 16:01 test

I can see that the "test" file is owned by the correct user.

I've tried without & with nscd, same results.
I've tried using sssd & pam_sss for ldap auth and having exactly the same results :

In /var/log/syslog, I have :
...
rpc.idmapd[561]: nss_getpwnam: name '<email address hidden>' domain 'my-domain.org': resulting localname 'user109'
rpc.idmapd[561]: nfs4_name_to_uid: nsswitch->name_to_uid returned 0
rpc.idmapd[561]: nfs4_name_to_uid: final return value is 0
rpc.idmapd[561]: Client 0: (user) name "<email address hidden>" -> id "55101"
rpc.idmapd[561]: nfs4_name_to_uid: calling nsswitch->name_to_uid
rpc.idmapd[561]: nss_getpwnam: name '<email address hidden>' domain 'my-domain.org': resulting localname 'user102'
rpc.idmapd[561]: nfs4_name_to_uid: nsswitch->name_to_uid returned 0
rpc.idmapd[561]: nfs4_name_to_uid: final return value is 0
rpc.idmapd[561]: Client 0: (user) name "<email address hidden>" -> id "55199"
...
only for the correctly mapped entries. No warnings or errors (rate limit disabled in rsyslog.conf) and verbosity set to 5 in idmapd.conf. It seems that rpc.idmapd never does mapping for other entries.
