How to erase disks in 2000FC MSA

Anybody know a quick way to erase all disks in the HP 2000FC MSA? I want to ensure that they are blank before shipping them back to HP at end of lease. Thanks.

you should delete the metadata on the disks. If you want to be sure configure the disk as a single disk and serve it to a host. Then run some sort of data shredder. IMHO it's safe to delete the metadata. The chance to get useable data from a disks that was memeber of a raidset is really small.

Best regards,
