As mentioned earlier it is probably a mismatch between uid/gid. And by
default root is *not* allowed access to nfs-shares unless you specify
map-root=root (freebsd-syntax) on your nfs-server, albeit this is
*not* recommended as well to grant root access to nfs.


When lenity and cruelty play for a kingdom,
the gentlest gamester is the soonest winner.
