FDS permissions on home directory


I am creating a few things which all connect
I using FDS to authenticate (LDAP and a few other things with it bundled)named FDS-TEST.
user name is test. Test's home directory is /imports/home/test

I created a home directory hosting server (named FDS-HOME) currently is NFS which will go to a more secure fashion maybe AFS or NFS through SSH not sure at this time yet. created directory /exports/home

I have a client PC named FDS-CLIENT which I have mounted NFS the home directory /imports/home
mount -t nfs FDS-HOME:/exports/home /imports/home

test can authenticate on FDS-CLIENT with out issues
test gets home directory with out issue

here is the issue
I can give UID to the folder of test but I am unable to give GID to the folder so currently test can surf anyone's folder

in other words it appears that FDS is not exporting GID of test (or any user) or LDAP is not assigning group ID's to the folders/directories

So far I thnk there is a solution to this issue of security access with exported home directories which are being hosted on another server.
As previously stated I can assign UID to directories but was not able to assign GID's.

solution so far is:
in the fedora-idm-console
create group called PosixGroup
inside that create an "other" which is posixgroup and call it by the UID

at that point was able to assign GID to directories
