strange username behavior using nfs
I'm trying to set up an NFS server/client. Everything seems to be working more or less OK, I've set up the relevant configuration files and so on. However, a strange thing happens when I try to mount the NFS share on the client machine. I've created a directory on which to mount the NFS share. Before I mount, if I do ls -l on the directory, the user and group show up as my username, as you would expect. But after I perform the mount, if I do ls -l, the username and group show up as another user on that machine. So then I can't modify anything on the share, which isn't too useful. Why are the ownerships mysteriously changing when I mount the NFS share? Thanks!
