[Samba] Backups of local shares

I use rsync to backup my linux samba shares to a remote tape backup server.
Users periodically have open/locked files within their shares.  Other than
telling the users to logout ( this doesn't always work - go figure), how can
I ensure the files listed in the smbstatus -L are successfully backed up?
Are there any other samba related tools to assist with automated backups?
