I'd suggest using LDAP, RH comes with pam_ldap and nss_ldap already in it,
there's a bunch of resources out there, probably start at padl.com. The
easiest way to get your users sorted for now, is do all the chowning and
editing of UID's as suggested by others.
http://padl.com would be a good place to start for information.
If you're a real glutton for punishment, you can do man exports and read
about UID mapping, and see if that suggests a solution to you. Me, I'd
finx the UID's manually and go with LDAP.
I have a couple of boxes now, and I'm using NFS. I have overlapping sets
users from box to box, and I created my users in different orders; so now
UIDs match up from one box to the other. this is making using NFS sorta
Can someone suggest how I can synchronize the UIDs? I know to keep the
boxes synched as I add more users, I have to use something like NIS, but
do I fix the current UIDs?
