How to securely wipe out netapp using OnCommand System Manager Version 3.1.1

Dear Community,

 

I am inheriting a really old Netapp system.

OnCommand System Manager: 3.1.1

 

I would like to securely wipe out the disk. I have googled and I think "disk sanitize" function is the one I am looking for.

However, is there any step by step to execute this command?

 

I cant seem to be able to find a step by step guide.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thank you.

HI

 

the guide you looking for is at:

https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1034477

 

As in https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1072424

You will have to do it via the command line and likely need to install a free licence

 

  • For Data ONTAP 8.0 and earlier, the disk sanitization feature needed a disk sanitization license. These licenses can be found under Master License keys in the Support site.
  • For Data ONTAP 8.1 and later, enter the following command to enable the disk sanitization feature:
node> options licensed_feature.disk_sanitization.enable on
