Here's a question I just got from my customers.

They have an i 7.2 host partition with a guest partition that contains all
their programs and data. ALL NWSSTG for the single guest partition is in a
PowerHA replicated iASP.

They have data from hundreds of customers on their system. All data is in
the guest partition with data in separate libraries and IFS directories for
each customer.

"A customer is demanding that we wipe to DoD spec all disks that contain
their data when it is no longer needed. How do we do that?"
