touch: /opt/FrontBase/Backups/Test cannot create

Dear managers,

I got a bunch of responses to my summary telling me that using anon=0
is no good. It gives root access to everyone which is definitely not
what I want. My first attempt

share -F nfs -o rw,root=merkur /opt/FrontBase/Backups

failed. I finally tried it with the FQDN

share -F nfs -o rw,root=merkur.smartsoft.internal

and this works like a charm.

Thanks a lot!
