[Samba] Grant computer account access to share?

I have a Microsoft application (SCCM) which I need to grant access to
a samba share, however the service which reads the files can only
authenticate using the computer account, there is option to configure
it to use a domain account.

Is there any way to grant a computer account access to a share? On
windows I can simply add computer$ to the permissions but this doesn't
seem to be possible.

Failing that might somebody suggest where the samba code could be
patched so that I could create a matching user account (computer with
$ stripped) and have samba grant that access instead.

Or a way to grant access based on the IP/name of the client?
