I am not very Linux/Unix/Solaris savy please forgive. With that being said I have a couple Solaris SunBlade 2000 machines with Solaris 7 on them. I need to Wipe them. Each system has just the one mounted disk. How would I go about doing this?

I found this
but when it gets to the analyze part is tells me I cannot do this on a mounted drive. How do I get around this?

Thanks in advance on any assistance.

If you have a CD or DVD drive you can use the GPartEd Live CD to wipe the drives. Just Download the ISO, Burn the ISO, Boot from the CD, and wipe the Drive clean.
