SAN data destruction

My company is looking to establish a data destruction procedure using a product called WipeDrive Enterprise.  This will work on Windows, *nix, Macs, etc.  I have an upcoming project that will requires data on a SAN be destroyed.  I have no experience with SANs and was wondering if there is a built in feature, native to the SAN, that can perform this funtion?

It would depend on the model of the san.  Most have a low level formatting function.  Deleting your LUN / array configurations and formatting the disks would pretty much do it.

It's a lot easier to destroy a SAN than it is to fix one.

I believe that the model is HP Netserver LP1000R.  The data is considered confidential so we'd need something that is capable of performing more than one format pass.

Netserver isn't a SAN, it's an intel based server, your wipedrive CD should be able to cope with it. If it was a SAN you may have problems because you would have to use something like wipedrive on each LUN and it may not have drivers for the HBA.
