Hi Alexander,

Thanks for the link. I read through it again, and I am still stuck on the
rpcgss service on the server...I don't know how to properly restart it. The
service in the documents is service nfs-secure-server enable (FC16), or
rpcsvcgssd.service (RH7), but I cannot enable using those.

I killed rpc.gssd process on the client and restarted manually with
rpc.gssd -vvv, which gave me more output. There is a flag set in
/etc/sysconfig/nfs which should have already been giving that output, but
it never took effect, even though I restarted nfs-server and
nfs-secure-server. What is the right way to restart rpcgssd.service and

Anyway, after manually killing and executing rpc.gssd, the homedir
automounts with krb5p when I ssh to the machine (yay - first time!), but
the files are owned by nobody. I cannot access the files as the owner. The
UID of the file owner is low (between 500-1000), so I had to change the
user's UID just to be able to login (<1000 is blocked by PAM). Maybe the
fact that the user with a matching UID doesn't exist is causing a problem
in mapping the files' owner to a user? If so, how do I most efficiently map
the name of the file owner to the user with a different numerical UID? I
had hoped the kerberos auth might handle this for me.

The homedir does not mount when I su from root (not particularly a problem,
but it was muddling the issue). This clued me in: rpc.gssd[9928]: No key
table entry found for root/nfsclient.domain.tld.

Thank you!
