Re: removing all data from a XP256

Run the XP256 through a 8FT diameter magnetic core ;-)

Or you can just recarve the array groups.. present new LDEVS (different from the original LDEV sizes) -- present ALL LUNS to serers and either:

1. dd copy to them NULLS
2. create a perl code to do random writes to fill of the LUNs
3. purchase some of the mentioned commerical data wiping tools available suggested in the recommended thread...
