My customer wants to restrict CIFS access based on IP address, is this link the only solution?
Can MultiStore do this?

I suppose it depends on what you mean. I can think of 2 ways to do this.
1. Only allow access to cifs shares based on CLIENT IPs. In this case only a set of client addresses can access a particular share, but the request can come in on any interface on the storage.
2. Only allow access to cifs shares based on SERVER (i.e. controller) IP. So if a client connects to 10.1.1.2, they get access to a set of CIFS shares regardless of where they come from. Coming into a controller on a different address would give access to different shares, or other services.
If you want to do #1, then the article you referenced is the answer. If you want to do #2, MultiStore could be the answer or starting in either 7.2 or 7.3 you can restrict protocols on particular interfaces which could also be a solution.
So, it depends. (don't you just hate that?)
Hope this helps.
