Wiping an HP Lefthand SAN

Good evening all,

What is a good way to wipe an HP LeftHand SAN?

For servers or desktops I typically use Active@ KillDisk and do a DoD 3-pass wipe if I need to reuse the disks. If I never need to use the disks again I send them to be degaussed.

But not sure on the SAN side of things. My guess is KillDisk probably won;t be able to see the disks on a SAN.

I know factory resetting isn't a real security wipe. Nor is reinitializing the RAID. Nor is moving the disks around to kill the RAID.

    Accepted Solution

    The drives are SATA.  Hook them up to another PC and use your KillDisk.
