True.  But I'm also having someone sign off on a confirmation that the
data is gone.  I've showed him the wipe process I've chosen for now and
the company is ok with that - and he knows enough Solaris to know what I'm
doing.  As long as the machine has no data on it when I leave they don't

I was honestly looking for something I could do when I get it home.

And if someone truly makes an issue of it I still have paperwork with the
drive serial numbers and I can bring them all back into the building again
for disposal.

You are trapped in a maze of twisty corporate suits. All the same...
