>From the man page for mountd:

-n      Allow non-root mount requests to be served.  This should only be
        specified if there are clients such as PC's, that require it.  It
        will automatically clear the vfs.nfsrv.nfs_privport sysctl flag,
        which controls if the kernel will accept NFS requests from
        reserved ports only.

Alternatively, you can adjust the Ubuntu clients so they're trying to mount
the drives as root from the assigned port.
