I'm having some nfs write permission problems.

On the server:

/tank ,fsid=1,nohide,sync,no_subtree_check,no_root_squash)  

The permissions on the export set recursively are:

drwxrwxr-x root fsshare

fsshare is a group on server/client guid:=500. I don't want to give 777 access. I only want members of that group and root writing to that folder. 777 does work to allow write access. On the server/client the user is part of that group. Both server/client have that user with uid:=1000

On the client /etc/fstab contains    /mnt/tank   nfs     rw,noatime,tcp      0       0

The share mounts as nfs version 4. I'm using nfs-utils 1.2.8-ubuntu2

Any help would be appreciated.
