Your new joined DC tries to ask the DC that owns the RID master FSMO 
role for a set of RIDs, but this machine refuses the connection. So your 
new DC doesn't have RIDs, what prevents you from creating users on that 

Is your replication working?
# samba-tool drs showrepl

Check, which of your DC owns the RID master role
# samba-tool fsmo show
Then have a look on that machine, if Samba works correctly on that 
machine. Maybe you removed this machine meanwhile and the role wasn't 
transfered to a different DC.
