[Gluster-users] Access from multiple hosts where users have different uid/gid

I use a unified UID/GID process. I personally use FreeIPA. It can also be
done with just LDAP or (not recommended for security reasons) NIS+

Baring those, a well-disciplined manual process will work by copying
passwd, group, shadow and gshadow files around to all systems. Create new
users on a specific machine and then use a home-brewed script to push/sync
the files to all other machines.

Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you gain
at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a dog on his own tail.
It won't fatten the dog.
