10 man 5 exports (at least my localized german version) lists the map_daemon
11 option, which allows mapping of UIDs / GIDs between server and client. This
12 needs the rpc.ugidd to be running on server side.
13 I never did this, I don't even know where to get rpc.ugidd from, and I'm
14 pretty sure it won't work at all with opensolaris, but at least with linux
15 it should be possible then, theoretically.
