Description

  • 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
