The NFS server must not have the all_squash option enabled.
The "all_squash" option maps all client requests to a single anonymous uid/gid on the NFS server, negating the ability to track file access by user ID.

If the NFS server is read-only, in support of unrestricted access to organizational content, this is not applicable.
The related "root_squash" option provides protection against remote administrator-level access to NFS server content. Its use is not a finding.
To verify the "all_squash" option has been disabled, run the following command:
# grep all_squash /etc/exports
If there is output, this is a finding.
Fix Text (F-43405r1_fix)
Remove any instances of the "all_squash" option from the file "/etc/exports". Restart the NFS daemon for the changes to take effect.
# service nfs restart
