The effects of dumpDatabase are outside the state model. An update of dumpDatabase causes the contents of the DC's database to be written to a text file on the DC's disk. All the attributes specified in the dumpDatabase value are included in the dump, except that certain security-sensitive attributes are omitted from the dump even if requested. The dump may include attributes that were not explicitly requested.
