Description Steve Dickson 2014-08-13 19:27:42 UTC
Description of problem:

Previous behavior of libnfsidmap was to do a name lookup of
nobody@DEFAULTDOMAIN (for both user and group), which does not match
the behavior of rpc.idmapd.

This patch makes libnfsidmap respect Nobody-User/Nobody-Group for
lookups, thus making the nfsidmap utility properly handle the case if
nobody@DEFAULTDOMAIN does not directly map to any user/group on the

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Uncomment Nobody-User in /etc/idmapd.conf and set it to a value
2. Do a NFSv4 mount.
3. See what value is used when there is no valid id/gid mapping
