can and how to access a used sas disk using bash
I do a bit for for local charity that refurbishes and repairs computers, the proceeds going to 'steps' at Bolton. A donation of several sas hard drives has come in and I have got the job of wiping the data before re-sale. I have got a sata adapter and been using a live cd/dvd to access said drive but the nearest I've got is for the live disk (cfdisk) to recognise there is something there although it cannot read it. Any suggestions? Or do I need a special motherboard or O/S?
