Permanently Disabling the Appliance

You also have the ability to permanently disable an appliance by deleting all firmware versions on the appliance and securely erasing the contents of its hard drive.

This procedure will leave the appliance in a permanently unusable state. All firmware versions will be deleted, and the hard drive will be securely erased.

This is a destructive operation and cannot be undone. If you need to preserve your current configuration, make sure that you have exported it before continuing.
