Default netbios name not the same inside share. need help

I have setup samba file server and it is working.

When i press \\192.168.x.x then in the title bar is will show me the correct hostname and also the server string = %h (Samba, Ubuntu) part inside the smb.conf.

So it will say KKT-Server (Samba, Ubuntu)(192.168.x.x)

but when i access the share then it will show a different name.

It will show software on KKT-Server1 server (Samba, Ubuntu) (192.168.x.x)

Ho can i change it so that the names are both the same or maybe that i can make the netbios name different when i access the share.
