You should be seeing this under "Configured Mount Points:":
/usr/sbin/automount --timeout 60 /mci ldap openldap.int-evry.fr:ou=auto.mci,dc=int-evry,dc=fr

If it's not listed there, then the autofs init script isn't going to
start up an automounter on the directory, which would prevent you from
getting anything in your logs about those.  And when I add the /mci
entry you've got (I'm assuming the --timeout=60 is wrapped to the next
line by your mail reader) to my /etc/auto.master file, I see it listed.

Having gone back and read earlier messages in this thread, I think
that you only need to add "files" back to the "automount:" line in
/etc/nsswitch.conf for things to start working.

Yup.  Sorry I missed that attribute.
