Right, and agreed. We've migrated to using kerberos authentication and
NFS4 for most of our NFS mounts, but since oVirt requires the all_squash
and *ID of 36, that won't work.

Honestly, our LAN is fairly well protected and our users are more or
less "trusted", so I don't think it's _that_ big of a deal; but
restricting access as much as possible is better than nothing.

Do you have any suggestions? I'll admit, NFS security definitely isn't
one of my strong suits. Restricting the to specific IPs, was just the
best and easiest thing I thought of, keeping the insecure export options
in mind.

Cheers, Prakash
