I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

URGENT tip: sell the server without the hard drives! anyone can install recovery software and see what data you have on them.
you can use Darik Boot and Nuke and use it 2 or 3 time to make sure no one can recover data.

for the price, sorry cant help. but where are you located (country)? you can ask dell retail suppliers if can buy it.

I am pretty sure that there several sites in India that have buy/sell ads for Computer equipment ...if you have one for Systems Administrators it should be the best....just post a sell ad and depending on the price and bit of luck  you will get an offer....take a look at the current market for a system that matches your own and deduct about 30% off.

the server procured is with Vmware Esxi6.0 U1 Embedded Image Flash Media VMs running on this.

Does not make any difference ESXi 6.0 is free!
dban (free version) cannot access SAS drives.  You need to use their paid/enterprise version (blancco).

You can use your RAID controller to break the config, then create an individual RAID-0 or JBOD for each physical disk.  Each disk would then be visible as a logical drive to dban (or other disk wiping software).  Wipe each volume with the method of your choice.

You only need to run a wipe one time.  Using a single-pass wipe over 100% of the disk is sufficient for general use.
The multi-pass options are FUD, unless your job requires check a box on a form somewhere.

In all cases, don't run the Gutmann 35-pass wipe.  That method was invalidated a couple of decades ago, and probably never made any difference in the real world.

The write-random and write-zero methods are single pass.
