We have a bunch of old SAS drives from retired servers and they need to be erased or destroyed, so we figured the most cost effective solution would be to get an old desktop, drop an SAS card in it, and use it as a designated drive eraser. We've got no time frame for when this needs to be done so if we can only two a handful each day, it's no big deal.
Has anyone ever used a rig like this before and will it work as intended?
Here's what we were looking at buying - https://www.amazon.com/SAS9211-8I-8PORT-Int-Sata-Pcie/dp/B002RL8I7M
Additionally, I assume we'll need one of those breakout cables so we can connect multiple drives at once.
Will Darik's Boot and Nuke detect the SAS drives and erase like normal, or is there another app I should use?
