Ok uid, username, password,  really does not get used. It is by passes
with the forcing of the users and groups. Mainly it's for detail. But I
promise I spent two days on trying to get this working right and this is
the only way it would work and integrate with Windows also.

The solution I was given by a long time Unix admin was use NFS and
forget it but I could not do that. Also in your linux client try the
fstab entry with the correct user setting you need and uid and password.
