I'm not exactly clear on your question. As worded, it sounds like you
should just edit /etc/fstab and set the desired GID, but that sounds too
easy. If that's not the answer, can you restate your question?
Ideally, we'd need to know the current state of the relevant group names
and GIDs on each machine involved and an explanation of what needs to
change. My apologies that I'm not understanding the question as
Best of luck. This sounds like an annoying obstacle in something that
should otherwise be making your life easier.
