|:I am quite used to hp-ux but have some nfs trouble with my new SGI
|:comp (IRIX 6.5). when I create a file in a share (MS services for UNIX
|:Ver. 3.5) the uid stays unchanged while the gid becomes 60001
|If I recall correctly, 60001 is the defined ID to use for NFS anonymous
|access, aka 'nobody'. 'nobody' was originally userid -2, but this
|was standardized upon 60001 when userids become unsigned with
|the possibility of extension past 16 bits.
To add a further point: 'nobody' is the ID that is to be used
when there is no corresponding ID in the destination system.
Thus if the original group -name- is not defined on the IRIX system,
then the group ID would be changed to 60001. You aren't seeing the
userid change as well because you have the userid -name- defined
on the IRIX system.
