File no longer "locked for editing" when in use

Not sure if this is the right place for this question, but I have a Excel file that was recently moved from a Windows server to a Linux server, and now multiple people can open and edit it without receiving a "this file is locked for editing by another user" message. On top of that, this file has been periodically "disappearing", apparently being renamed as a .tmp file, with the latest update to the file being lost. Is this something that can be fixed by changing a setting in Excel, or does something need to be changed on the server?
