Description

  • The Secure Erase operation erases all data from full disk encryption (FDE) drives so that they can be reused.
  • Use this operation only when the FDE drives are no longer part of a secure volume group or disk pool or when the security key is unknown.
  • When a drive is securely erased:
    1. A new random Encryption Key is generated by the drive.
    2. The drive security system is disabled.
    3. The drive is processed as a new drive.
