I noticed that when I build new pc's which are utilizing internal DHCP,DNS services. I'm able to see folders via \\server name and I'm able to open folders on two domains.Is that normal ???
I did not join domain yet...??!
When I do  \\FS1  from run prompt  for the regular server not domain it's asking me for credentials???Shouldn't that be for domain also..???All these servers are part of the same domain.
The account which I'm using is strictly for IT to build pc...
