[Gluster-users] Gluster NFS - no permission to write from Windows

It really depends on how Windows is assigning a UNIX uid during NFS access.
Gluster just takes the Unix UID encoded in the auth header as-is. In this
case that number is actually the unsigned representation of -2.

Regarding performance, please look for any odd messages in the NFS server
