Hi, yes it is very easy.

Bind the mac into the AD domain with the AD plugin in directory utility with the following options:
Uncheck force local accounts
Use protocol smb
Check derive network home from home folder location

Implement this fix here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ts3346 - basically uncomment one line in the file

Reboot

Connect to network shares via go, connect to server smb://server.domain/share

If all that fails, you could consider a copy of ADmitMac from Thursby software. Not the cheapest solution, but it works flawlessly. You can download a trial here: http://www.thursby.com/products/admitmac.html

(I have no association with the company, I just like their software)
