Answer

The options cifs.restrict_anonymous.enable command states it is deprecated.

Both commands will change the cifs.restrict_anonymous option. The following helps understand how.

options cifs.restrict_anonymous.enable following messages are displayed:

<ON>
This option is deprecated; using options cifs.restrict_anonymous 1 instead.
Possible values for this option are
0. No special restrictions
1. Enumeration is restricted
2. Access is fully restricted

<OFF>
This option is deprecated; using options cifs.restrict_anonymous 0 instead.
Possible values for this option are
0. No special restrictions
1. Enumeration is restricted
2. Access is fully restricted

As a result of changing the options cifs.restrict_anonymous.enable directly, you will see the option did change:

<ON>
FILER>options cifs.restrict
cifs.restrict_anonymous 0
cifs.restrict_anonymous.enable off
FILER>
FILER>
FILER>options cifs.restrict_anonymous.enable on
This option is deprecated; using 'options cifs.restrict_anonymous 1' instead.
Possible values for this option are
0. No special restrictions
1. Enumeration is restricted
2. Access is fully restricted
FILER>
FILER>
FILER>options cifs.restrict
cifs.restrict_anonymous 1
cifs.restrict_anonymous.enable on
FILER>

<OFF>
FILER>options cifs.restrict
cifs.restrict_anonymous 1
cifs.restrict_anonymous.enable on
FILER>
FILER>
FILER>options cifs.restrict_anonymous.enable off
This option is deprecated; using 'options cifs.restrict_anonymous 0' instead.
Possible values for this option are
0. No special restrictions
1. Enumeration is restricted
2. Access is fully restricted
FILER>
FILER>
FILER>options cifs.restrict
cifs.restrict_anonymous 0
cifs.restrict_anonymous.enable off
FILER>

The only change of the option to 2 is to use the non deprecated options cifs.restrict_anonymous command.
