[Samba] File locking in a cluster

I have 2 Sun T1000's running Solaris 10 and Sun Cluster 3.2.
They are each connected to a fibre attached SATA RAID array which they
use as data storage area for PC clients.
Both servers are running Samba 3.0.25c.

The problem I have is that when a PC client access a file via Samba
running on server-a and another client accesses the same file via Samba
on server-b no locking is happening. Both PC clients are able to edit
the file and save changes with the other knowing about it.

Is there any way around this?

Any help greatly appreciated.
