Hi David,

This can be done by creating a directory in nfs mount with respective 
owner/group and the directory can be used during mount to allow the user 
specific access.

For example, a volume MyData can be mounted to make directory with respective 

# mount -t nfs -o soft,nolock server1:/nfs/MyData /mnt
# mkdir /mnt/demodata
# chown demouser.demogroup /mnt/demodata
# umount /nfs/MyData

Now, demouser can mount and use with the directory for normal access.

# mount -t nfs -o soft,nolock server1:/nfs/MyData/demodata /mnt

Let me know how this works.



All the volumes are owned by root.
