Description

This KB described the steps for erasing all data from drives in an Element cluster.

Residual data can be removed from drives that are listed in the Available Drives list. This process uses a SecurityEraseUnit command to write a predetermined pattern to the drive and resets the encryption key on the drive. The drive shows a status of erasing while the drive is being secure-erased. This process is available only through the API.
