[Samba] Samba with Global File System

Is it possible to use Linux Samba with a Global File System and have all
servers reading and writing the same files at the same time?  I've heard
that Samba maintains a small database that contains meta data type
information that is not communicated to other Samba servers.  And because
Samba sits above the file system, GFS cannot guarantee it has correct
information about the files.  Does anyone know if this is true or if Samba
runs in a stateless fashion?

Thanks for your assistance.
