Preventing access from some Windows clients to a CIFS share

Currently Being Moderated



IHAC who needs to narrow acces to some shares from only a few Windows clients.

The behavior they want is the same as for a NFS mount only available to some NFS clients.


This Netapp controller is NTFS-only, so there is only NTFS qtrees and no unix right anywhere.


What is available today on their controller:

- every share has some security ACL specifying users and groups who can acces the share.

- the issue is that shares are available from any Windows client in the domain


What theyr would like:

- For some shares, they want only some PCs to have access to the share.



Anyone has an idea ?


Best regards,
