I just looked at the IBM website and the Disk Sanitizer looked
interesting. But, there appear to be restrictions, such as units
can't be on same IOP as load source.

Is there a newer procedure that will completely wipe everything
securely? Rob's. 50 cal method would effect resale value, I would

Just use DST to Initialize the System. Unless you need disks wiped to
military standards that should be all you need. I recall Al Barsa saying
that nobody was retrieving a system that had been initialized, so this has
always been good enough for me....
