Sure. Latest AD still supports the RPC-based
"security=domain" mode that does not require Kerberos at
all. However, this assumes SMB signing which is only
properly supported from Samba 3.0 on, so an upgrade is
necessary here. Your W2k8 can be configured not to require
signing, but Samba 2 is so old that I would highly recommend
upgrading anyway.
