one of my customers has this issue on RHEL 6.0

created user/group of velocity/velocity with
>>those id's. Everything looked right, until I rebooted the worker in
>>order to test the startup sequence. After it rebooted, it reports the
>>owner/group of /mnt/velocity to be nobody/nobody. As a result, user
>>velocity is unable to write files on the share.

I told him to do chown - R root /mnt/velocity  but no luck. Any ideas ?

Make sure that the mount is not part of the autofs mounting process /etc/auto_home auto_master etc.
If that is how the partition is mounted, the ownership is set within that process and the chown/chmod does not work over those type of place holders.

If it's a mounted NFS share you'll have to export it with the "no_root_squash" option in order to allow root access.

Don't forget to umount/mount the share on the client after making changes and re-exporting the share on the server.
