1. Use ldapmodify to undelete a soft-deleted entry that has an original RDN, uid=user.1, to a new RDN, uid=user.5. You will need to ensure that the DN that you are undeleting the entry to does not already exist as this will lead to an "entry already exists" error if you specify a DN that already exists in the Directory Server as a normal entry.
    $ bin/ldapmodify --allowUndelete
    dn: uid=user.5,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
    ds-undelete-from-dn: entryUUID=4e9b7847-edcb-3791-b11b-7505f4a55af4+uid=user.1,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
  2. View the results using ldapsearch. You will notice the RDN and the uid attribute has changed.
    dn: uid=user.5,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
