I'd like my NFS server to always use the same user ID to own the files, whatever user ID is used on the client.

Is this possible and how?

Put -mapall=user into your exports file.

See man exports for details

This is possible, look at the User ID mapping section in the exports manpage.

Basically you want this in the exports line: all_squash anonuid=whatever anongid=whatever

If you're not on linux but on BSD, do what Chris S said.
