DFS can't control file locks, unfortunately, nor can FRS. What you could do
is disable DFS referrals to one of the servers so that users always contact
the other server. This is sort of like having a primary server (with
referrals enabled) and a backup server (with referrals disabled). If the
primary server is unavailable, you could enable referrals to the backup
server. Is this something that would work for you?

I am trying to setup DFS between 2 locations. My goal is to map the DFS path
for the user's in both locations. My problem is that users can access the
same file at the same time in both locations. Is there a way to setup file
locking through DFS. Right now if a user edits a file in the south and
another user edits the file in the east the last person to save the file is
what's changed in file. I thought with DFS it woul dbe able to detect when a
file is open.
