Hi Rowland,

The problem wasn't getting NFS to work - it was getting NFS "root" 
access to work between a CentOS 7 client and CentOS 7 server  (AKA 
no_root_squash in /etc/exports).

Finally, after a significant amount of effort, I figured that out last 

In my case, I needed to add a realms section for realm AD.EECS.YORKU.CA 
and include 2 auth_to_local rules as follows:

     auth_to_local = RULE:[1:$1@$0](J1\$@AD.EECS.YORKU.CA)s/.*/root/
     auth_to_local = DEFAULT

This allows root on "J1" to "really" be root.  Additional of the first 
line are required for each system.  The DEFAULT line is required.   Lots 
of fun let me tell ya.
