Basic NFS export settings

The basic NFS export settings are global settings that apply to any new NFS exports that you create.

The basic NFS export settings are described in the following table.

Setting
Default values
Root User Mapping
User: Map root users to user nobody

Primary Group: No primary group

Secondary Groups: No secondary groups

Note Image

The default settings result in a root squashing rule whereby no user on the NFS client, even a root user, can gain root privileges on the NFS server.

Non-Root User Mapping
User mapping is disabled by default. It is recommended that you specify this setting on a per-export basis, when appropriate.
Failed User Mapping
User mapping is disabled by default. It is recommended that you specify this setting on a per-export basis, when appropriate.
Security Flavors
Available options include UNIX (system), the default setting, Kerberos5, Kerberos5 Integrity, and Kerberos5 Privacy.
