Check with 'userWorkstations' and 'sambaUserWorkstations'.  This is the 
other way where you define these attributes for users and restrict which 
workstations they can log in.

I am not yet 100% whether this feature has actually been implemented in 
the samba code or not. I have not yet tested this. If not, please raise 
a feature request upstream. BTW ldap supports these attributes for samba
