Knowledgebase : Blancco LUN
INTRODUCTION: Large storage environments are often configured to contain multiple virtual drives on the logical layer. These virtual drives are called LUNs (logical unit numbers) and their configuration makes it easier for the administrator to manage th...
No. Blancco LUN is designed for remotely accessing selected LUNs or drives over the network as long as the administrator has access to the environment.
After every erasure, Blancco Virtual and Blancco LUN both generate reports in XML format. These reports are stored locally on every ESXi server from where the erasures were initiated. When this happens, there is a specific XML file created for each erasur...

Blancco LUN overwriting method number 50 can used for handling compressed data. Some high-end SAN systems include automatic compression of data. An erasure standard which is based on a single character overwrite will therefore be compressed and the overal...
Blancco LUN erases on the logical level. DCO and HPA are not visible to the operating system and are therefore not addressed by Blancco LUN. However, two things should be kept in mind; Blancco LUN is designed to be a during-life solution. For end-of-life ...
1. The choice of erasure algorithm has a very strong impact on the total processing time. For example, if a three-time overwriting algorithm is chosen, it will take three times longer to compete the erasure than a one-time overwriting algorithm. Based on ...
The most common basic Blancco LUN related issues are: * The user is not an administrator and the LUN erasure command is not run as an administrator: * The solution is designed for shredding whole drives. It will first remove any partitions and file...
Blancco related license issues might not always be related the software (Blancco 4, Blancco 5, Blancco Mobile, Blancco LUN, Management Console, etc.). The HASP USB dongle can also be the source of the problem. Before contacting the Blancco Technical Suppo...
Some organizations base their erasure processes upon booting WinPE. Additionally, certain devices (such as some running Intel Atom processors) fail to boot Blancco 5. In both of these situations, you have the option of using Blancco LUN to securely erase ...
