Description

How is no squash implemented on NetApp storage systems?

Some Linux NFS servers have an option called no_root_squash which disables the default behavior of squashing the root user.
Root squashing is a security feature. NFS commands executed as the root user on the client will be considered as originating from the "anonymous" user.
While this specific option is not supported it is possible to obtain the same effect with the "root" option in an export entry.
