Obviously, I can look at /etc/exports on the NFS server-side to see if no_root_squash is enabled, but is there a way I can check this from the NFS client-side without actually mounting the share?

Running showmount -e myserver and rpcinfo -p myserver from the NFS client don't help.

I'm using CentOS 6.
