Even though the Bootable Asset Report is enabled, it is not displayed when rebooting the machine.
In order to activate the B.A.R functionality, it has to be:
- Enabled (via the DECT)
- Blancco Drive Eraser / Blancco 5 has to erase successfully all detected drives during the same session
- An erasure report has to be generated and kept (saved on a USB stick or sent to BMC)
The reason the B.A.R. does not show up can be due to the fact that Blancco Drive Eraser / Blancco 5 is being used to erase a machine that has 5+ drives: Blancco Drive Eraser / Blancco 5 can erase within the same session up to 4 drives which is not enough to activate the B.A.R. writing.
As Blancco Drive Eraser / Blancco 5 cannot erase more than 4 drives per session, in order to activate the B.A.R. the user has to use Blancco Drive Eraser / Blancco 5 Server that can erase more than 4 drives per session. In case the user does not have Blancco Drive Eraser / Blancco 5 Server licenses, all the machine's drives can still be erased in more than one session (e.g. from 5 to 8 drives, one reboot is necessary and two erasure reports need to be kept). If the user activates the Fingerprint functionality, this mini-report will be written on each erased drive individually and can be used as a substitute of the B.A.R. (although a hexadecimal reader is required to check the Fingerprint).
