How to join a VirtualBox VM running Linux OS to a Windows domain

I have a number of VirtualBox VMs that run on the Linux operating system.  The host machine runs Windows 10, and it is a member of a Windows domain.  I would like to share files that I have on the Windows domain.  The only way I can do this appears to be to join the Linux VMs to the Windows domain.  How can I do this?
