You posted this:
workgroup = AP-MEDIA

So why are you using the user 'media\\svc_domjoin02' to join to the
'AP-MEDIA' domain ? the user 'media\\svc_domjoin02' appears to be fromanother domain.

This is probably because the user is unknown to the domain.

Try reading these:

However, there isn't really much on the Samba wiki and I don't use
trusts (I once set up a POC forest, but this was way back at Samba
4.9.x). Is there anyone using trusts that could help here ?
