okay, ill specifically ask... could someone find the time to write me a script? that would be nice..i would buy them a pizza or something!!!
Heres what i have so far:
RESULT="HD Wipe Complete"
MACHINE="grep -i 'NETBIOS_NAME=' /tmp/machine.name"
dcfldd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda | dcfldd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sda | dcfldd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda | dd if=/dev/sda | hexdump -C | grep '1'
mail -s "Hard Drive wiped for $NAME" firstname.lastname@example.org
The remote wipe command was issued for $machine & $name.
The script returned the status: $result
end of message.
ps. thanks for the links as well.. ill read them
