Why? Last I checked, netapp filers had SMB support.

Not advisable, no. SMB emulates windows locks and NFS mandates UNIX locks and they aren't compatible. You may or may not have issues. 
I would suggest you ask around the samba-technical list for best practices, and if you can't fully understand all the implications then you'd be safest finding another solution.
