Remove hd


Dear all,

I would like to remove a hard disk completely from my AIX system. Every trace of this hd excistance should be deleted like it has never been there. I also want the hd to be earased completely. Like if it's brand new, never used. How can I do this?

Thanks in advance,
Robbert

Somehow some info was still being kept by the system. Therefor I could not re-install the drive again. (I was using the same vg and lg names) Once I cleaned up the /etc/filesystems, I was able to re-install the drive again without any problems.

Thanks anyway!
