Goal

When having to temporarily disallow access to smb shares on a 7x10 or 7x20 unified storage system the mistake is often made to disable smbd with unexpected results as imapd generating lots of errors making the system almost unusable.
This document describes the preferred way to temporary disable user access to selected smb / cifs shares when the systems administrator wants to. It also describes how to re-enable access.
