Proliant DL380 G3 - Windows Server 2002 -Wiping Drives

 Is there a way to wipe all of the drives in the server?

I've seen mentions of an HP downloadable application called Smartstart, I think?

Any help is appreciated.

The SmartStart CD is a bootable disk that allows you install the OS, upgrade the firmware and perform other tasks. I don't know if it includes a utility to wipe the disks cean but I would use a "Linux Live CD" to do that. There are many document online, search for "wipe a disk using a Live CD".

Since the system is so old, why not just taking a hammer ...?


Hope this helps!
