Test Kitchen: need to have domain included in kitchen.yml

Hi...i'm trying to test a recipe in Test Kitchen that is based on the domain that the computer is located in. I've tried "vm_hostname: servername.local", but i get an error that i specified a FQDN instead of just a host name. Is there a way to inject a domain, so that ohai (or even Powershell) can see it on the VM?
