I created a NFS Share on one linux server.

[root@desktop4 ~]# cat /etc/exports
/prod  *(rw,sync)


[root@desktop4 ~]# showmount -e localhost
Export list for localhost:
/prod *


Mounted on 2nd Linux server

[root@desktop10 ~]# ls -ld /prod/apache/
drwx------. 2 root root 4096 Jun  5 18:30 /prod/apache/

[root@desktop10 ~]# mount -t nfs 10.10.10.39:/prod /prod/apache/
[root@desktop10 ~]# ls -ld /proc/apac

drwxr-xr-x. 2 nobody nobody 4096 Jun  5 13:13 /prod/apache/
[root@desktop10 ~]#



I did shared with rw permission on the NFS server, how it is mounting with following permission.

drwxr-xr-x. 2 nobody nobody 4096 Jun  5 13:13 /prod/apache/


Can some one explain how permission works here.  I am kind of new to NFS.

Usually, if you do not specifically grant root with read write rights in exports, root will be mapped to a nobody dealing with accessing the NFS resource.

Post the exports file.
ls -la / |grep test
You can use an option to explicitly specify the nfs verizon to use, 5 might default to NFS version 3.

try by using username and password while mounting.
