Re: Group ID conflicts between different distros: how to manage them with NIS?
You are right, I forgot to state that yes, I do use NFS to share files - great tip, this GID / UID remapping thing - thanks a lot.
However, it will not solve the problem on how to centrally manage system resources access across distros.

If you are using NFS to share files (you aren't saying that), the newer
nfs system allow UID and GID remapping.
No experience with that, though.
