Reliability of file locks on share between Windows and Solaris.

Currently Being Moderated
Are file locks on an nfs mount served from a Windows server
completely reliable (as on local file system)?
Here's the scenario.
Many processes running on multiple Solaris machines
need to synchronize between themselves
to access a resource on a Windows (Server 2003 sp2) machine.
The first thought is to run NFS server on Windows
and mount that on the Solaris machines
and then the processes on Solaris will attempt to get
a lock on a file on the server etc.
The principle is simple, but is this reliable and suitable for mission critical application?
Have you used this type of solution on production environment?
How do you address this type of resource sharing?
