Section Number and Name: 
Additional Configuration and Troubleshooting

Describe the issue: 
This section suggests that in order to disable ID mapping on NFSv4 on both server and client the following command should be executed:

`# echo 'Y' > /sys/module/nfsd/parameters/nfs4_disable_idmapping`

However, as stated in the KCS article mentioned above the paths are different for server and clients:

NFS client 
 # echo 'Y' > /sys/module/nfs/parameters/nfs4_disable_idmapping 

NFS server
 # echo 'Y' > /sys/module/nfsd/parameters/nfs4_disable_idmapping 

Suggestions for improvement: 
See above.

Created https://github.com/openshift/openshift-docs/pull/19968

Once approved, merge to master-3 and CP to enterprise-3.11

Added additional command added to show methods for both client and server, as described in bug.

@jrosenta - We are only supporting OCP 3.11 branch, so this was not backported to versions prior. PTAL to confirm this is correct.

@liangxia PTAL or let me know who from QE can review. Thanks.
