NFS with different UID/GID

The answer is very late, but perhaps it will help: idmapd is used to enable NFS-mounts and proper permissions between systems with different UIDs/GIDs. I got this running only in one direction (ls shows mapped users and groups, but creating files results in wrong UID/GID):
Perhaps you have a solution to this?
