The host definition can be placed in its own file or added to an already existing object configuration file. Here's what the host definition for remote host might look like:

define host {
    use         generic-host        ; Inherit default values from a template
    host_name   remotehost          ; The name we're giving to this host
    alias       Some Remote Host    ; A longer name associated with the host
    address     192.168.1.50        ; IP address of the host
    hostgroups  allhosts            ; Host groups this host is associated with
}
