Wiping HP DL380 with boot and nuke

“issue is that you get disk cannot be found”

Solution is to edit main file like so

  1. Run it so it comes up with your error, then press ALT-F4 and Enter to get a shell
  2. cd /etc/init.d
  3. vi main
  4. find line with sd[a-z] change to c[0-9]d[0-9]
  5. :wq – this writes file and quits
  6. then do ./main
  7. it will now detect disks
  8. for faster wipe make sure disks are in raid 0

Hope this helps
