If they needed that, they should have noted it upfront and the customer's
customer would have had to have had it's own LPAR with it's own disk.

But you know this I'm sure :)


Yeah in this case they keep dribbling in requirements. We already did an encrypted ASP for that customer but it's on virtual disks. You would think that would be enough for them but now they pulled out the DoD wipe requirement when the data is no longer needed.

We also figure we could have a second switchable iASP that contains the NWSSTG objects that host only the ASP for this customer. However to do that at this point would require adding a 5887 DASD expansion drawer and more disk units. That cost of course would need to be passed on to the customer and they wouldn't be so happy with that. :-(

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.

Here is the question:

"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?"

How indeed?
