Formatting FC Disk Drive on HSV Controllers

I need to know if I can format ungrouped FC disk drive on HSV controllers using HP Command View EVA fieldservice page.

Please provide the procedure or manual to format ungrouped disk drive .

 

Thanx.

anyway, fieldservice is not intended to by use by customers..

What you are looking for is a disk scrubbing feautre, not supported by EVAs. It's available on high level storages like XPs whereas it's licensed and customer will have to pay to use it. The only reason I can think of it is it needs licensing from different vendors to perform the high security level erase and that's only needed for enterprise level storages used in banking or other high security environment... and EVA is not a fit for them.

 

The other option is, if you have 8 or more disks, create a new group and perform the Vdisk creation/deletion, that will somewhat insures the data erase.

 

Hope that helps.
