Secure Wipe Netgear ReadyNAS Pro Business Remotely

Netgear ReadyNAS Pro

I had an old Netgear ReadyNAS Pro Business box that had to be wiped and decommissioned. In such cases I would normally pull the drives and wipe them using DBAN on a PC. Unfortunately this NAS was located in a remote office and I didn't fancy to jump on a plane just to wipe some drives.

There is no secure wipe option in a ReadyNAS web GUI, but fortunately it's possible to do this using RAIDar.
