You can modify a soft-deleted entry as you would a regular entry using the ldapmodify tool and remains hidden in its soft-deleted state after the change. The only restriction is that you cannot change the DN or run a MODDN operation on the soft-deleted entry.

To move a soft-deleted entry from one machine to another, use the move-subtree command and specify the DN of the soft-deleted entry. For more information, see To Move an Entry from One Machine to Another.
Note: To modify a soft-deleted entry, the user needs the soft-delete-read privilege to access the soft-deleted entry.
