[ubuntu] NFSv4 Problems

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have simple little home file server, currently running fedora 10 and long in need of being upgraded. So i built a new server using ubuntu 12.04 and it was fine until i tried to get nfs working. uids and usernames dont match in my home so with fed 10 the way things worked was if i were on my desktop as "testuser" (uid 1000) and fed10 has a "testuser" (uid 500). If i wrote a file to nfs the server would store it as uid 1000, client would see uid 1000 and so everything worked ok (even if the server had no notion of who uid 1000 was) - this still works with 12.04 clients t (Hardware)
