You need to add no_root_squash as an option or the mounting client only get
guest privileges. /etc/exports should look like:

Subject: [oclug] NFS with rw / remote backup
Question about mounting nfs filesystems.
I'm doing a:
client:#mount -w -t nfs server:/ /mnt/hostname
The filesytem mounts fine, I can read all the files I want. However, I'm
not able to write to the filesystem.
On the server, the /etc/exports file has the following:
Also, let me explain why I'm doing an nfs mount (maybe someone can give me
an other idea to complete my task).
I've just installed an exabyte tape drive on my main server (I have 3 linux
servers, all running behind an LRP firewall/router). I want to be able to
backup certain/all file systems on each of my servers. I figured an easy
way to this would be to have a script do an nfs mount on the 2 other servers
and back up the mount along with the local filesystems.
I think this would work, however if I had to restore my data for what ever
reason and I'm not able to gain rw access on the remote filesystems, it's
going to be a big pain to restore the data on the other 2 servers.
