Need to wipe disks

I would like some suggestions on free utilities to wipe disks.
It has to support fiber, I have an MSA1000 that I am using, and want to wipe 14 disks at a time, without wiping the host.

Get Dban (Darius Boot and Nuke)

 It has several modes, a couple of which are up to DoD standards.  A good DoD wipe will take several days.

Ty, but these all appear to need to reboot the host.  Since it is fiber attached disks I am concerned with, I am not sure that they will boot to fiber attached storage, and I would much rather not have to reboot the host.  Any more ideas?

not me, sorry
Are you returning or selling the MSA?

If you are just wanting to re use it in another department, just a simple reformat of the luns should suffice.

Thanks for the help, but all the tools mentioned need a reboot, not quite what I was looking for.
