I've to zero 12 disks before migrating them to a production system which already has DataONTAP installed.
I've a FAS2020 which I can use for zeroing, but whenever I go to Maintenance Menu and choose either:
(4) Initialize owned disks
(4a) Same as option 4, but create a flexible root volume.
- after the process completes I'm always left with 9 spare disks, and 3 disks bunched up into aggr0 aggregate with DataONTAP installed on it.
My questions is this: Is it possible to zero all disks without the storage system performing any tasks on them? To simply wipe them clean so I can immediatelly use them in the new system?
