It is 'access based share enum', not 'access based shared enum'

The smb.conf manpage says this:

access based share enum (S)

    If this parameter is yes for a service, then the share hosted by the service will only be visible to users who have read or write access to the share during share enumeration (for example net view \\sambaserver). The share ACLs which allow or deny the access to the share can be modified using for example the sharesec command or using the appropriate Windows tools. This has parallels to access based enumeration, the main difference being that only share permissions are evaluated, and security descriptors on files contained on the share are not used in computing enumeration access rights.

    Default: access based share enum = no
