Are there any ways to restrict hosts to access CIFS shares? Or, If it is necessary at all?

We can authenticate users to access CIFS shares by AD. However, are there any ways to allow a certain of serers to access shares? Or if there are such needs at all?

 

Thanks!

You can use export policies:

It's usually disabled by default for CIFS:

You may also want to look into Dynamic Access Control:

you can then apply AD policies with an AND operator such as a particular user has to also be on a particular machine to access a share.
