Then you need some other heuristic for cfagent to decide what domain a
machine is in. An IP range is just one example of such a heuristic. For
example, your OS install procedure could include touching a particular
file in /etc, which is tested for by FileExists. There are many other
ways you could differentiate those groups of machines.

Or you could do a grep on /etc/hostname (or whatever). If there is a
way that the host can figure out its domain, then there is a way that
cfagent can figure out the domain.

For example, on my debian boxes I could do:

        cs_uchicago_edu = (
            ReturnsZero(/bin/sh -c '
                /bin/grep /etc/hostname >/dev/null 2>&1
