In addition to what Jason writes:
It is good practice to start with a share like "shared" in "/export/shared" and not with the /homes folder, as the home-shares pose additional problems (like access rights). If the user accounts are already created as Unix local acounts, the domain users might not be able to access them.
Make the /export/shared folder 777 and if this works continue towards the home shares.
Important: Jason already indicated, that the valid users should be empty, when this works, make valid users something like "MYDOMAIN\%S" and see if you can make progress.

Have fun with Samba,
