 For NFSv4 ID mapping to work properly, both client and server must be running
 the idmapd ID Mapper daemon and have the same Domain configured in /etc/idmapd.conf.  

Did you look on the innertubes? This seems to be quite a
popular question. No help here, for instance?


If not I'm sorry for wasting your time.
