|Drive Eraser 6.5.2 (and newer)||N/A|
Erasure of HGST SAS drives (specifically models starting with "HUC") fail the erasure on verification due to read error count reaching or exceeding the configured threshold. Erasure report shows errors similar to the below screenshot.
This issue has been identified at least for the following hardware combinations:
|Fujitsu Primergy RX2520 M1||RAID Ctrl SAS 6G 1GB (D3116C) MegaRAID SAS controller||HGST HUC101812CSS204|
|Fujitsu Primergy RX2530 M2||PRAID EP400i MegaRAID SAS controller||HGST HUC101830CSS204|
|Fujitsu Primergy RX2540 M2||PRAID EP420i MegaRAID SAS controller||N/A|
As a workaround:
- Affected drives can be erased successfully by connecting the drives to another unit which is not affected by this issue (for example, Blancco Hardware Appliance).
- The erasure can be run on the original unit by running erasure on a logical level. Note that this process will not run the erasure on physical disk level and instead the erasure will be applied to the logical volume configured within the storage controller settings. This being the case some disk specific details (such as vendor, model and serial) may not be available on the erasure report. Follow below steps to do this:
