I'm having problems with understanding how NFSv4 user mapping works. For a start I tried to achieve just something following this guide https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NFSv4 but my share still mounts with uid 4294967294 :(
So, here is what I want to do:

I have an NFS server:
Code:
# /etc/exports: NFS file systems being exported.  See exports(5).
/shared                 192.168.1.0/24(rw,fsid=0,root_squash,no_subtree_check)
/shared/archives        192.168.1.0/24(rw,root_squash,no_subtree_check,nohide)
/shared/media           192.168.1.0/24(rw,root_squash,no_subtree_check,nohide)
/shared/music           192.168.1.0/24(rw,root_squash,no_subtree_check,nohide)


and I have 3 clients in this network. On each client I have different users (with different UIDs) that I want to give access to this share to.
What do I need to do on client and server sides to achieve this?

the common easy solve is to just set the same domain for every clients and the nfs server for idmapd
i don't know for archlinux, but let's suppose it's the same as in gentoo, it's then just setting the domain in /etc/idmapd.conf to something on all hosts and the server

duh, stupid me! It was actually working. I forgot to set up owners and permissions on the server side.

Now I only need to figure out this users-groups-permissions stuff. :)
