Wipe the data on the disks of a VNXe 3300 ?

Jump to solution

I asked this question last week, but need to dive a little deeper.

I asked about zeroing out the data on the disks of a VNXe3300. I was pointed to a document containing commands to destroy the data and prepare the VNXe for decommission.

However, I need to get down to the byte level on the disks and overwrite the data on the disks themselves.

Is there an EMC tool that will do this?

Thanks !

Hello pawtucketri72,

You can use this command zero out the drives so that data will not be readable.

navicli -h zerodisk -messner B E D

B Bus

E Enclosure

D Disk

Here is an example of how the command should look. navicli -h 192.168.1. 200 zerodisk -messner 1_1_6

Hello pawtucketri72,

You can run the command from command prompt on a system that has Navishpere or Unisphere on the host.
