I have the following Vagrantfile:

config.nfs.map_uid = 33
config.nfs.map_gid = 33

config.vm.synced_folder "/home/test", "/home/test", type: "nfs"

After vagrant up /home/test folder successfully mounted but uid=1000 and gid=1000 (1000 - owner of this folder on host), not 33. In host's /etc/exports everything looks good to me:


Vagrant version: 1.6.5

Host OS: Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS

Guest OS: Debian 6.0.9

The developer of Vagrant has answered the question on Github:

This is correct. it doesn't change the owner, it just changes the user that files are read/written as when they are accessed on the guest. You won't see any visible change in the guest.
