Re: Wiping Solaris Servers



Is the hard drive important? When Google bought GreenBorder, they removed and destroyed the hard drives, then called a recycler to pick up the computers.

When I replace failing hard drives, I take them to the parking lot, and throw them against the ground, hard. The platters are made of glass in later hard drives and will shatter, the drive will sound like it's full of gravel.

Subject: Wiping Solaris Servers

Hey everyone,

I need to find a method of securly wiping Solaris servers using the DOD
standard disk sanitization requirements. So far the only thing I have
come up with is customized bootable Solaris CD of some sort with bcwipe
on it. There has got to be a better way. Does anyone know of a
bootable (or other) solution that's a little less complicated.
Essentially we would need the end process to be so easy a monkey could
perform the task.

Ideally, during the surplus phase a wharehouse employee would boot the
server up, run a simple command, and the server would be on its way...

Any assistance is apprecited.

Regards,
Bobby
