Use the following procedure to completely erase the content from a hard disk.
1. Go to CPM root shell level
# unix su
2. Erase content of the hard drive# Warning: There are no additional confirmation messages once command is run; all the content of the disk will be lost.[[email protected] admin]# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/<disk>
where disk is:/dev/sda
Depending on the size of the drive, it may take a few minutes as it overwrites each sector of the drive with zeros.
In the same way, the content of the HDD attached to APM might be erased/filled with zeros when run from VAP root shell level.
