How to format everything on UCS C240

Hi,

 

After we finish PoC, the clients want to format all of hard disks.

 

Is there anyway we can do it ?

 

We have 2 SSD, 6SAS disks.

 

Also OS was ESXI 5.5

 

I was trying to find a command on ESXI, however, I couldn't.

 

Can anyone tell me how to format every disks on this platform?

 

Thank you.

Jiyoung,

        As far as I know there are 2 different Ways to get this done. 

 

 

1. If the C series is integrated into UCSM, just create a Scrub policy in the SP attached to the server and set it up to YES. then reboot the server and as soon as the discovery has finished. Disassociate the SP from the server and that will cause the scrub policy to wipe the HDDs.

 

 

2. If the C series is a Rack mount. Just delete or Modify the Raid configuration to any other Raid # except the one that you already have. That will wipe as well all the information stored in the HDDs.
