Pinned topic DS8300 DDM shredding

‏2013-07-10T07:55:12Z |

Hello,

I have been searching through web about disk shredding of DS8000 but could not find a satisfactory solution. Does IBM offer a tool in order to wipe all storage box ? Since I am retiring our old box I am asked to ensure that all data is deleted on the box.

I am looking for a internal solution provided by storage controller. I don't want to create volumes, map them and format them.

 

Regards,

Niyazi

    If you have the latest firmware/micro code, you get the feature called Secure Data Overwrite, that will help.

     

    You can find more information in the redbook - http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redbooks/pdfs/sg248886.pdf

    Search for Secure Data Overwrite and you should end up in chapter 1.4.10 at page 18 (page 40 in the PDF)

     

    But note:

    Tip: The secure overwrite functionality is offered as a service exclusively and is not

    intended for use by clients, IBM Business Partners, or IBM field support personnel.
