Server share points, ownership, and Get Info

Both the hint and the above reply are good information. UID's are not a traditional Mac environment issue and, a UID mismatch does not prevent the user from doing any other task that they have rights to do. For the general user this will not be an issue unless they have a need to change ownership of a file. Of course it is always better to be complete and follow best practices when ever possible.

While I'd say this was expected Unix behaviour, I agree that it's well worth pointing out to Mac users. Unix sysadmins working with me in the past used to maintain consistent UIDs across machines to ease this sort of problem.
