Configuring Kerberos NFS Servers

NFS services use UNIX user IDs (UIDs) to identify a user and cannot directly use GSS credentials. To translate the credential to a UID, you might need to create a credential table that maps user credentials to UNIX UIDs. For information about the default credential mapping, see Map GSS Credentials to UNIX Credentials. The procedures in this section focus on the tasks that are necessary to configure a Kerberos NFS server, to administer the credential table, and to initiate Kerberos security modes for NFS-mounted file systems. The following task map describes the tasks that are covered in this section.
