Can't secure erase ML350 Gen6

Hi Everyone

 

We are having trouble securely erasing a HP ML 350 Gen6
P401 Controller
Latest BIOS
SAS disks

We are using the seagate disk wizard erase utility but it can't find the SAS disks. Ditto for DBAN

Any suggestions most welcome.

Hi,

 

Have you tried the System Erase utility which is available when booted from SmartStart CD?

Erase utility will return a ProLiant server to its original “clean” state by erasing hard drives and clearing system BIOS settings.

 

 

Thank You!

You will need to boot something that has a driver for the Smart Array controller. You could get the HP Scripting Toolkit and then a program to wipe the disks. Using the Linux version of the toolkit you could use "dd" to write random data to the disks
