earse/wipe all configuration and data on the arrays

Hi community,

Hopefully someone can help me here.

We have several Nimble arrays (CS500) that are out of support while we closed out a datacenter a few month ago. The arrays have been shipped back and now sitting in the warehouse at HQ.

We need to ewaste/recycle these arrays but due to the company compliance requirement we are requested to erase all the configuration as well as any data from the array.

I found the KB article (KB-000361) from Infosight in regards to Array Sanitization, so I would like to confirm that this will erase every configuration and data and put the arrays back to the factory default.

This process follows NIST SP 800-88 standards for secure data erasure.
It just sanitizes the disks. It does not restore the array to factory defaults.

A reimage is what restores the array to default. Since the arrays are out of support, reimage is not supported without Nimble Support Management approval.
