[Samba] Leased Based Locking

Hello All,

I am at a client site and I am wondering if SAMBA supports the lease-based
exclusive locking protocol.
Does anyone have any info on that?

I know that SAMBA is using CIFS (SMB) under the covers. CIFS supports
lease-based exclusive locking protocol
as far as I know.

SAMBA is mounting an AIX file system and My Win2K3 servers need to hit it
with lease-based exclusive locking protocol
for transaction fail-over.

Thx for your consideration,
