ONTAP 9

Description

Whenever an HA pair running ONTAP needs to be re-purposed or reused, the configuration and data must be wiped from the system for it to be prepared to be utilized again. 

Warning:  All data and configuration for the HA pair will be removed during this procedure.  Prior to proceeding with this repurposing process, move all data to another ONTAP cluster.

Warning:  If an HA pair is using encrypting SAS or NVMe drives (SED, NSE, FIPS), you must follow Returning a FIPS drive or SED to unprotected mode for all drives within the HA pair prior to initializating the system (boot options 4 or 9).  Failure to do this may result in future data loss if the drives are re-purposed.
