I need to create CD for wipping out hard drives before boxes are decomitioned. Considering to use DBAN:
- does it matter that the boxes are running HP Unix? Will this effect anything?
- is there a different version for different architecture?
I would assume that I create bootable CD (following whatever steps are recommended) then boot up on the relevant box from CD and wipe out the disk.
I'm asking because I was told that because the boxes are old HP with non-Intel/non-AMD architecture DBAN will not work.
This is customer requirement to be added to our installation/removal procedure for software that we provide for the box (excuse my ignorance, I'm trying to help system admin guy ...).
