arcconf uninit

Description

Uninitializes one or more physical drives. The uninitialize command clears Adaptec meta-data and any OS partitions from a drive; existing data on the drive is destroyed. Drives can uninitialized only if they are in the Raw or Ready state (that is, not part of any logical drive). A drive in the Raw state has no Adaptec meta-data but may or may not have an OS partition.

Note: Uninitialized drives are compatible with any HBA and can be exchanged with drives on the motherboard's SATA interface. For more information about uninitialized devices, see arcconf setcontrollermode.
