Multiple samba servers, 1 smb.conf.include file

Hi Everyone --
Currently we are running two samba servers, server1 and server2 for
example, which are each using the same smb.conf.editme as an include
file to the server's smb.conf file for it's shares. In other words if
you go to \\server1\my-share or \\server2\my-share, it would be the
One quite large problem that we are running into is that although each
server will apply file locking, if two people connect to the same file
from both servers, they will both get write permissions to the file.
For example, if I open \\server1\my-share\test.doc, and someone else
runs \\server2\my-share\test.doc, we would both be able to make edits
and save, meaning of course, that someone is losing their edits.
I am wondering if there is anyone else running multiple samba servers
sharing out the same files. And if so, do you know of any mechanism to
ensure the file locking is working across both share environments.
Any comments are extremely welcome.
Thank you for your time,
