This looks like the instructions:

https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/2751.kerber
os-interoperability-step-by-step-guide-for-windows-server-
2003.aspx#Using_an_MIT_KDC_with_a_Stand-
alone_Windows_Server_TwentyOhThree_Client

In terms of pain, let me put it this way:  You are the first person I
can remember asking about this on the Samba lists.  

Also, you still have to create all the user accounts on each Windows
client, you just get to share the passwords.  

All in all, you start to see why we built Samba's AD DC.  You might not
be able to use it, but we didn't think the alternative was practical
either.
