[Samba] simple command to check domain membership

I'm planning to automate domain joining with samba+winbind for a classroom.

Using cfengine, I'll have to trigger domain joining by checking current
status via a shell command.

An example :

has_hostname = ( '/bin/test -f /etc/hostname' )

What would be a simple and safe test to check whether or not the machine has
already been joined to the domain ?

Thanks in advance,

Mikael Kermorgant
