The messages about failure to load Unicode character maps seem to be
"normal" in current releases of Samba - we get them too, without apparent
ill effect.  I don't think they have anything to do with your domain-joining

You'll need to provide more info - probably your config file first, and a
description of how you set things up, then a *trimmed* level 10 log of a
domain-joining attempt - before anyone will be able to help you.
