Re: Wipe iSeries disks???



fixed

Thanks for the link.

We got lucky: hardware vendor agreed to take them off our hands cheaper
than the cost of sending it to the computer recycling place! :)

And now I have my space back...more valuable than the machine, that's
for sure.

   When we got rid of the last two AS/400's we destroyed
   the hard disks because the machine was worth the
   same with or without the disks: $5.
    
   You can use DST to perform disk initialization, here's the IBM link:

   If the link is wrapped, paste back together in notepad, then
copy/paste to

   I do have fond memories of playing frisbee in the parking lot with
the
   platters from our last CISC box......

     We are officially retiring an old 310 and a 510 machine after
several
     years of steady work. One thing I need to do is wipe the drives
     completely. Is there a command more "powerful" than dltlib that you
are
     aware of? I'll be deleting the Mapics and custom libraries; I don't
     think the system will allow me to remove the "Q" libraries.

     Any suggestions?

     Patrick
