    Hi ,

    Thank you for sharing this article, very helpful ,

    when we are mounting with rw permissions in client side, can we restrict root/normal user to delete this nfs shared folders from client side.

    My Export config in server side

    /files   (rw,all_squash,anonuid=99,anongid=99)

    Mounting with below command

    mount -t nfs -o rw   ipaddresss:/files/frontend_shared /fe_shared/

    please advise.
