Dear friends
I want to factory reset large no. of Seagate SAVVIO 10K.5 SAS hard disks , is there any solution or tool for the same ?
These are self encrypting type disks and come up with a default Factory password printed on hard disks label. Customer is supposed to change it later.
One of my customer has stock of such disks & he want to utilize them for some reason.

Why would a drive leave the factory with a password???

As for Seagate tools, there are the SeaChest Utilities, FWIW.

Do you mean the PSID (Physical Secure ID)?

Quote:
9.11 RevertSP

SED models will support the RevertSP feature which erases all data in all bands on the device and returns the contents of all SPs (Security Providers) on the device to their original factory state. In order to execute the RevertSP method the unique PSID (Physical Secure ID) printed on the drive label must be provided. PSID is not electronically accessible and can only be manually read from the drive label or scanned in via the 2D bar-code

Code:
   --revertSP DrivePSID

      This command is very fast at less than one (1) second. It
      changes the internal encryption keys that are used for user
      data causing all previous data to be useless. This operation
      performs an Opal SSC specification revertSP on a Self
      Encrypting Drive (SED). This operation is available on all
      Seagate SED drives which are marked on the label with the words
      "Seagate Secure".

      The PSID (Physical Security IDentification number) is a
      32-digit number & capital letter sequence printed on the label.
      There is no electronic query for this number, therefore the
      drive must be removed in order to read the PSID number.  Many
      drives have a PSID code on the label but are NOT marked as
      "Seagate Secure"; these drives do not support revertSP
      cryptographic erase.

      Enter the PSID without spaces. FIVE attempts are allowed before
      a power cycle is required. It can also be read by 2D barcode
      reader. Upon completion, the drive will be "like new" with all
      user data being cryptographically erased and all other settings
      set to factory defaults.

      Example: --revertSP 123ALL32DIGITS123ALL32DIGITS123A
