is user mapping working correctly? How users on this network are managed? locally on each machine or via a directory service like ldap or nis?

Is your ypserv and ypbind process running on your server? With what parameters are your nfs filesystems mounted? Pls show your /etc/exports setting and your /etc/fstab on your client. thx.
