The mount is thus only on tjener.intern.

The processes for thin client users are running on tjener.intern, this
the mount point is visible.

The processes for diskless workstations are not running on
tjener.intern, and thus the user do not see this mount point.

Either by adding setup to mount the share on every diskless
workstation when they mount, or by setting up the login process (using
f.eks. pam-mount or pam-python) to mount the shared area in the users
home directory when a user log in. I guess it also would be possible
to use user specific views on the mounted directories to allow all
users to mount their version of the mount point on the same directory,
but suspect that is more effort than it is worth.
