I have an RSA Authentication Manager Appliance running 8.3 which we have recently replaced with newer RSA Appliance hardware.  I want to destroy / securely erase the old appliance so it can be disposed of.  Can someone advise on how to do this please.  I have found three options which have been recommended


1.   Use Factory Reset from GRUB not loader - does not exist

2.   From CLI do a rsautil factory-reset - command exists but does not take factory-reset parameter

3.   Boot from 8.3 DVD and use this to install factory default version - I don't have a DVD of 8.3 or means to burn an image, software was downloaded to windows share and installed from here, never had media.


Is there another option available to me, bar physically destroying the hard drive?
