      Description

      While doing triage of all the old tickets, there were at least 2 cases where the ticket was filed because the fqdn was not correct for their networking setup.

      We should add a suggestion/Caveat that in these cases they should consider creating there own custom fact that contains the network name that they would prefer based on their networking and override the fact.

      In the Fact Precedence section do we want to specifically explain how to override one of facters facts and the point them to it?
