Of course you see the same uid/gid numbers on the clients. what the
clients are missing is the associated username. on your client uidnumber
300006 could very well be jennifer and not steve2. the fact that you see
the uidnumber and not a username means that your nfs clients don't have
the users in the nameservice in use. to make things work properly you
need to make the users you have in samba known to your nfs client's OS.
