I have been trying to find this info but all examples point to adding a pve user, and when I try to add the pam user to the pve group it says, not to anyones surprise, that the user doesn't exists.
And if I add the user in the GUI as a PAM user that user does not appear when listing users in the CLI.

Why I want this is due to nfs. I want user 1000 and group 1000 to be used when connection to my nfs server.

It's possible by:
1. Add the system user as a PVE user: pveum user add user@pam (assuming user@pam exists on the system)
- It will now show up with: pveum user list
2. Add a permission for the user, giving it PVEAdmin: pveum acl modify <PATH> --roles PVEAdmin --users user@pam

Yes! That solved it for me! :)
