[Samba] SAMBA setup problem

Hi all,

Firstly, sorry for my english, is not the best.
I'm sure my question is simple, but I didn't find a solution.

I installed SAMBA 4.8.3 on CentOS 7.6.1810 so that it manages access to
some folders being shared across the network and also to manage user access
(logins) on domain-configured Windows computers. However, when I use a
computer that does not have a domain set up and try to access the folders
being shared over the network, SAMBA requires me to enter the domain IP in
the "username" field along with the login:


What must be done so that the user does not have to enter the domain IP
even when the machine is not within the domain?

smb.conf file:

        workgroup = T12
        server string = Samba Server Version %v
        netbios name =
        interfaces =
        hosts allow = 165.8.104.
        log level = 2
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        security = user
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        domain master = yes
        domain logons = yes
        logon script = %U.bat
        logon path = \\\Profiles\%U
        logon drive = z:
        add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -n -c "Workstation (%u)" -M
-d /nohome -s /bin/false "%u"
        local master = yes
        os level = 64
        preferred master = yes
        wins support = yes
        load printers = yes
        cups options = raw
        create mask = 775
        directory mask = 775
        ntlm auth = yes[homes]
        comment = Home Directories
        path = /data/users/%u
        browseable = no
        writeable = yes[printers]
        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba
        browseable = No
        guest ok = no
        writeable = no
        printable = Yes[netlogon]
        comment = Network Logon Service
        path = /data/users/netlogon
        guest ok = yes
        public = no
        writable = no
        browsable = no[Profiles]
        comment = User Profiles
        path = /data/users/Profiles
        create mode = 0600
        directory mode = 0700
        writable = yes
        browseable = no[public]
        comment = Public Area
        path = /data/public
        public = yes
        writable = yes
        printable = no
