This is a comma seperated list of methods to use.

The currently supported ones are listed below and checked in the listed order.

The naming of those wraps around to the similarly named methodes.

    #Only the hostname methode will be tried.
    my $obj=Net::LDAP::AutoDNs->({methodes=>"hostname"});
    
    #First the env methdoe will be tried and then the hostname methode.
    my $obj=Net::LDAP::AutoDNs->({methodes=>"env,hostname"})

newEESDP

Creates a new Net::LDAP::AutoDNs object in a EESDP LDAP Standard method.

byDevLDAP

This sets it up using the information found under '/dev/ldap/'.

More information on this can be found at http://eesdp.org/eesdp/ldap-kmod.html .

byEnv

This sets it up using $ENV{AutoDNbase} for the base.

byEESDPenv

Populates all DNs using the EESDP LDAP Standard in regards to environmental values.

byHostname

Sets the DNs based on the hostname. The last subdomain is chopped off and each '.' is replaced with a ',dc='. This means 'host.foo.bar' becomes 'dc=foo,dc=bar'.

Returns true if it succeeds.

Error Codes

$obj->{error} is defined, there is an error.

0

Methode not implemented yet.

1

Retrieving hostname failed. Most likely caused by 'hostname' not being in the path.

2

None of the methodes returned matched or returned true.

3

Either the system does not support /dev/ldap/.
