FC-Disk erasing - is there a FC Adapter? - How to do in EVA 4xxx

How to erase securly a Fibre Chanel Hard Disk? I found no adapter to connect such a disk directly, with USB or something else to a PC. Is there a possibility?

Without an adapter I would habe to deltete it directly in the Enclosure. (Still an activy array there and I found no option to delete a single disk secure.

Someone as any idea for me?

Best Greetings and Thx

the old HP EVA disk shelves could be plugged directly to a FC hba and see the disk.

or one of these but very expensive

why you want to erase a single disk?

Hope this helps!

I want to delete, cause the disks are no longer good for productive use and i want to give them to the trash.

Sure i could physically destroy them, but a secure DoD 7 times deleting would be smarter.
