3.8.16 domain

 
  domain = ( domain name )

This variable defines the domainname for your site. You must define it here, because your system might not know its domainname when you run cfengine for the first time. The domainname can be used as a cfengine variable subsequently by referring to $(domain). The domainname variable is used by the action resolve. The domain is also used implicitly by other matching routines. You should define the domain as early as possible in your configuration file so as to avoid problems, especially if you have the strange practice of naming hosts with their fully qualified host names since groups which use fully qualified names can fail to be defined if cfengine is not able to figure out the domain name.
