I thought NFS access was via user ID. The drawback of this is different
users could have the same ID on different computers. For example, I
could be user 1000 on my computer and you would be 1000 on yours. An NFS
file server sharing for ID 1000 couldn't tell the difference between me
& you.

But surely, no decent admin would allow her network to have id collision. e.g. Yast always chooses a unique uid be it /etc/passwd or ldap.

That's ssuming the admin controlled all the computers on a network. What's to stop someone from bringing in a notebook and plugging it in? At many companies, nothing.
