We are looking to re-start our virus scan server to protect our Data Ingestor. Not sure if CIFS service restart is a requirement or not. Thought I'd ask as a protocol restart would be disruptive.
You can find guidelines about Virus Scanner on "Single Node Administrator's Guide":
Note: If the following operations are performed, the CIFS service must be restarted.
• When using a command to modify the CIFS share settings while the CIFS service configuration definition settings do not allow the CIFS share settings to be automatically reloaded
• If the real-time scanning is enabled or disabled After you enable or disable the real-time scanning, restart the CIFS service.
