What does your /etc/bootparams file say? My contents look something like:
Regarding the NFS config, the lines containing -maproot=3Dnobody:nobody
are the only questionable lines I can see.
I could be wrong, but this would essentially mean any file created in
/usr or /home by root on the client machine would then be owned
nobody:nobody on the NFS server. I don't know if this is your desired
result, but if the bootparams file is okay I would consider mapping
root to root:wheel or remove the switch. If it is the desired result,
making sure nobody:nobody can own files contained in your export dir I
believe would be the next logical step?
