Disk Sanitization on Network Appliance / NetApp Server
Posted on 2011-02-20
I have a few various NetApp filers, shelves, etc. and the hard drives must be erased using a 3-pass w/verify. My initial searches revealed a tool that NetApp provides for this purpose, and it appeared that the license was now available at no charge. My question would be:
1. If using the NetApp utility, what (high-level) steps are required from start-to-finish? Does the tool provide for a recorded log of the activity?
2. Are there any alternative methods of wiping these drives in-place?
Thanks in advance for any insight you may have!
