How to clean disk in the EVA

We installed Oracle cluster software and deinstalled it but the data in the disk is not cleaned.
Need to know how to clean the disk. some of the data in the disks need be clean .. before we try re-installing CRS..

Oracle CRS software detecting that CRS has been installed..

Thanks

Hi,

That very much depends on what Operating System you're running...

Re: How to clean disk in the EVA

Does this software use a standard parition table? Can you drop it, create a new one and then temporarily put an NTFS filesystem on it to wipe out the old data?

If nothing helps, I am afraid that you need to delete and recreate the virtual disk(s) on the EVA as it will erase all blocks of a virtual disk after creation.

Mmmm. If it's a NTFS partition, what's keeping you from formatting it or deleting it?
