We are looking to delete/sanitize hard drives on a full EMC VMAX array and looking for someone who is an expert in EMC hardware setup/topology. We will be using a host computer/server with FC/SAS ports to connect to the DAE expansion chassis so that they are detected by the host computer/server as JBOD so that we can wipe the drives. WE are looking for someone to be able to put together a roadmap on the best hardware/cabling needed for the host computer/server (cards, cables, etc..) to connect to the EMC VMAX DAEs. Also, would need pointers on what not to do so that once the VMAX has been wiped, it can be reused/repurposed again.
Here is the hardware details on the unit:
EMC VMAX10K disk array
~ 98 x 1.7TB SATA HDD
~ 160 x 272.6GB FC HDD
~ 25 x 93.16GB EFD HDD
