You need to do some tricks to get msoffice files with glusterfs and samba
In your samba share definition:

path = /your/path/to share
 posix locking =NO  <--- important setting
valid users =@yourgroup
directory mask=2770  <--set sticky bit for your group
        force directory mode=2770
        create mask = 2770
        force create mode=2770
        force security mode=2770
        force directory security mode=2770
force group = yourgroup

Its working for me.

Betreff: [Gluster-users] Using Samba and MSOffice files

I cannot use Glusterfs(3.2.4) Samba export to edit MS Office (Word and Excel
files) on the Windows side. I see that others complained about this issue
before but I do not see any solution? I use Samba exporting other local
disks and they have no issue, so I think the issue is related with
