How do I: Secure erase devices attatched to LSI HBA
I discovered how to secure erase drives using hdparm which is incredibly useful. However, it appears that the commands dont work when the drives are plugged in using the LSI SAS 9201-16e HBA. I get the following output:
"HDIO_GET_IDENTITY failed: Invalid argument"
Does anyone know if there is something i can download to get the HBA to trigger a secure erase? MegaRaid keeps popping up everywhere, but I'm not sure I can use that CLI as this does not support RAID and is just an HBA.
(getting information with smartctl works, but cant trigger secure erase with that.)
hdparm to read HDD attached on HBA
having same issue, any news from your end? cheers.
