# show drive Infos and lock for "frozen" state!!! shoud be not frozen/locked hdparm -I /dev/sdb # if frozen, try the following: systemctl suspend # then, unsuspend. It should be "not frozen" after that # now, erase the data hdparm --security-set-pass NULL /dev/sdb # set the "NULL" password to UNLOCK the Controller hdparm --security-erase NULL /dev/sda # run secure erase!
