I'm trying to setup an home directory on a file server and port them
as home to several machines.
According to the following webpage, it may have the following problem
setting up NFSv4 w/o Kerberos. Would it be this problem for the task
of setting up the home directory via NFSv4?
Note regarding UID/GID permissions on NFSv4 without Kerberos
* They do not work. Can someone please help investigating?
Following this guide will result in UID/GID on the export being
generic despite having same UID on client and server. Mounting same
shar on NFSv3 works correctly with regards to UID/GID. Does this need
Kerberos to work fully?
