The file /etc/request-key.conf will need to be modified so /sbin/request-key can
direct the upcall. The following line should be added:

This will direct all id_resolver requests to the program /usr/sbin/nfs.idmap.
The last parameter, 600, defines how many seconds into the future the key will
expire. This parameter is optional for /usr/sbin/nfs.idmap. When the timeout
is not specified, nfs.idmap will default to 600 seconds.

/usr/sbin/nfs.idmap will handle gid, user, and group lookups.
