You have a major problem here, you seem to attempting to join using 

The workgroup is 'media' and the user is 'svc_domjoin'.

First possible problem, who is 'svc_domjoin' ? and does the user have 
the required privileges to join a computer the domain ?

However your main problem is that you are using a user from the 'media' 
workgroup, but your workgroup on the proposed Unix domain member is 
'EMEA-MEDIA', they cannot be different.
