[389-users] 389-console LDIF export question

Dear all,

I would like to clarify how the procedure to "export -> LDIF" through 
the 389-console GUI is done (or how if reproduce should be done).
As far as I've understood the exports on the server itself is done 
through creating a appropriate entry in cn=export,cn=task,cn=config
For "remote" machines using the GUI this isn't valid as the nsFilename 
attribute requires a local write able location. What I've seen through 
looking at the
LDAP protocol queries done during an export-to-ldif on console machine 
task is a query to the schema listing all attributeTypes which are then 
sent as attribute-retrieve-list in the ldap search. At least that's how 
I was able to reproduce the same LDIF from GUI-Console export and 
manually. Is this correct and should this be done in that way ? (I've 
noticed also the "Warning: If you don't have permissions" statement when 
using the LDIF export in the Console which more-or-less ack's my approach)

thanks for any hint.
