Will AutoRAID destructive down erase all data on the disk?

I'm replacing disks in an AutoRAID 12H, HP-UX 11 environment.

I need to make sure that the disks will not have any information left on them after I've pulled them out (confidentiality). I'll be doing a destructive down with:

arraycfg -D slot -d array-id

Does a destructive down wipe the data off the disk, or does is just remove the AutoRAID's ID info off the disk?

Nevermind! I'll just open the modules, take the disks out, put them in a Linux box and DOD wipe them clean.
