First off, my apologies for the above e-mail being sent out 3 times...
I'd like to thank the following people for replying back:

Welp, I should've known what the problem was right away. But since I
was told that I had been given root privileges, I though the problem was
on my end. The NetApp sysadmin had the following entry in her
share -F nfs -o rw=my.host.machine /directory/to/share
This only gave my machine read/write privileges.
In order for my machine to have root access to the mounted filesystem,
the NetApp sysadmin had to edit the entry to:
share -F nfs -o root=my.host.machine /directory/to/share
