Okay, in which case, the join will always fail, your new machine is NOT 
in the active directory dns domain.

You posted in your smb.conf:

password server =

 From your /etc/hosts: emdc1ftpl03.dmz.local  emdc1ftpl03

and    azeuw1dcem01.emea.media.global.loc

dmz.local != emea.media.global.loc

Also if 'dmz' means this is a machine in a demilitarized zone, then you 
will have to open that many ports in the dmz firewall that you would 
render it virtually useless, but you would still have the wrong dns 
domain problem.

There are various other problems, but they pale into insignificance with 
your main problem.
