how to keep the user and group name the same on two diff NFS clients from the same NetApp NFS server


we export a NFS VOLUME to a HP-UX and a Linux server. oracle uid and gid has different values on these two NFS clients.

now, files are created on hpux by oracle have ownership of "oracle:dba", however, on the linux server, the ownership on the same file appears to be two values, for instance "1000:1001" for uid and gid on linux.

i tried "-sec=sys,rw,anon=0,nosuid", and also a lot of other possible combinations. Is there anyway I can get this issue resolved, other than change uid and gid on one of clients?




The only way to resolve this issue is to have identical UID for identical users on both systems. This is how NFS always worked.
