CTDB + SAMBA + LUSTRE Window Share File Locking


I'm having an issue with file locking whist using lustre+ctdb+samba

My Lustre Setup
3 oss
3 Clients each with ctdb and samba services running.

All servers and clients running Centos 5 - Kernal 2.6.19-92
All servers and clients with Lustre 1.6.6
ctdb 3.0
Samba 3.2.1

CTDB Configuration:

./configure --bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin --libdir=/usr/lib/ctdb



/etc/ctdb/public_addresses eth0


SAMBA Configuration

./configure --with-ctdb=/etc/ctdb --with-cluster-support --enable-pie=no --bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin --libdir=/usr/lib/samba --with-privatedir=/share/mnt/ctdb --with-lockdir=/usr/local/var/ctdb --with-piddir=/var/run --with-swatdir=/usr/share/swat --with-logfilebase=/var/log/samba --with-configdir=/etc/samba

Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[homes]"
Processing section "[filepool]"
Processing section "[printers]"
Loaded services file OK.
Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions

workgroup = MYGROUP
server string = Samba Server Version %v
passdb backend = tdbsam
use mmap = No
clustering = Yes
idmap backend = tdb2
fileid:mapping = fsname
ea support = Yes
cups options = raw

comment = The Shared Area
path = /mnt/lustre
read only = No
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777

All lustre clients have been mounted with the '-o flock' option.

Everything from a linux prospective is working fine, my linux clients can read/write to files on the file share and file locking is active.

From a window share prospective clients can read/write to files on the file share but file locking is not active.

The only errors I can find from samba logs are:

[2009/01/11 02:50:25, 3] Locking/locking.c:fetch_share_mode_unlocked(857)
fill_share_mode_lock failed
[2009/01/11 02:50:25, 10] smbd/statcache.c:stat_cache_lookup(235)
stat_cache_lookup: lookup failed for name [SG]
[2009/01/11 02:50:33, 5] lib/util_sock.c:read_socket_with_timeout(928)
read_socket_with_timeout: blocking read. EOF from client.
[2009/01/11 02:50:33, 3] smbd/process.c:smbd_process(2027)
receive_message_or_smb failed: NT_STATUS_END_OF_FILE, exiting

Has anyone dealt with a similar set-up and can assist with the file locking from a ctdb+samba environment ?
