This operation is triggered by setting the attribute to the DN of an existing object. The requester must be a member of the BUILTIN\Administrators group (section

The following shows an LDIF sample that performs this operation for the object whose DN is "CN=TestObject,CN=Users,DC=Fabrikam,DC=com":

 changetype: modify 
 add: dumpReferences 
 dumpReferences: CN=TestObject,CN=Users,DC=Fabrikam,DC=com 

The effects of dumpReferences are outside the state model. An update of dumpReferences causes all attributes that reference the given DN and all objects containing those attributes to be written to a text file on the DC's disk.
