I recently requested information on a similar problem and 
got the following solution from  Andrej Borsenkow  <borsenkow.msk at>
to restrict login to a machine only to certain users:

  include = /usr/local/lib/smb.d/usr.%m
in your master smb.conf and for every PC with name %m create the above
file with
  valid users = <your user name>
See smb.conf(5) about %m, include and valid users.
If file won't be found, the include line will simply be ignored, so some
of your PCs can be restricted and other not.

I have it working since then. Hope it works for you.
