How are you guys handling attributes for multiple systems (like clusters)?? 


For example, in cluster, I need to be able to add all nodes in the cluster to the /etc/hosts file on each cluster node.   I am not sure of the best method for setting / adding attributes for these entries without creating something like a separate role for each cluster.


I already have a hosts cookbook to add additional entries if the attribute has data.   I just do not know how to populate that array differently for different clusters.


Anyone have any suggestions or ideas?
