WIN 7 Pro

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...

Joining the domain will have client apps, updates and policies (settings) pushed to the clients as well as saved credentials.

When accessing shared folders on servers, members of the same network can access them based on the shares permissions... Credentials can be provided (if needed) to access the shares even without joining the domain.

See the following article for "fine-tuning" point on sharing in & out of the domain...

Well it depends what rights what I set on these specific shares, if everyone group has rights - it's simply normal.
