Dear Customer:
This kit contains the DocuSP Disk Overwrite software supporting all DocuSP-based printing products that meet the
minimum disk size requirements as described below.
Overview
The Disk Overwrite software removes all data from the spool, swap, and outQ partitions of the DocuSP hard disk. The
data cannot be retrieved. Data is overwritten in four passes using different patterns written to the entire disk or section
of the disk. This four-pass algorithm conforms to U.S. Department of Defense Directive 8500.1. Of the four passes,
the third pass is used to write 0x40404040 and the last pass is to verify (by reading and comparing) 0x40404040. An
option is provided to perform a single pass (fast mode) disk overwrite.
The data overwrite operation does not process defective or spare blocks for SCSI and FCAL drives. It also does not
perform any special disk error recovery. If a higher secure data overwrite scheme is required, the Sun Solaris Format
command Purge utility is available. Additionally, 3
UniShred Pro is available. However, it is not part of the DocuSP software nor is it supported by DocuSP.
The Disk Overwrite procedure can be initiated from the DocuSP interface or from a UNIX command line.
Requirements
DocuSP version 3.8 or higher
If running DocuSP 3.8, the Solaris Operating System version 8 for Disk Overwrite software only is required
(part number 301E54050).
NOTE: For systems originally installed with DocuSP 3.8 or earlier, a full scrape and new installation of the
Solaris Operating System is required to partition the drive for the Disk Overwrite functionality. All saved jobs,
fonts, forms, resources, and any other customer-installed software are deleted during the installation.
Minimally two 18 Gbyte disks or one 36 Gbyte disk in the Sun platform in order to support the disk partitioning
Disk Overwrite license enabled and activated on the DocuSP.
Installation
The DocuSP Disk Overwrite software is installed by a Xerox Service Representative following the instructions in the
Installing the Disk Overwrite Software section of this document.
NOTE: If a scrape install is required, all saved jobs, fonts, forms, resources, and any other customer-installed
software saved on the DocuSP controller hard disk must be backed up to another medium prior to installation.

  • Page 3 4. Answer Y (yes) to the package installation questions. 5. Once the package is installed, the system provides the following Disk Overwrite installation directions: a) Enter the type of verification to perform after sanitizing the disk(s). Input S for Sample verification or F for Full verification: For example: Enter S for 10% sample verification or F for full verification.
  • Page 4 3. If the system was scraped and saved jobs were restored from the /var/spool save repository, the customer, or the Xerox Service Representative, must run the conversion tool that updates the internal links for the new default locations by performing the following: a) Open a terminal window.
  • Page 5 3. If there are active jobs in the system, a warning message is displayed that all active jobs are deleted. Select [OK]. 4. The Data Overwrite screen is displayed.

  • Page 6 user mode to continue the boot process. NOTE: If the process needs to be aborted before completion, the printer must be powered off, then back on before re-booting DocuSP. If you do not power off/on the printer, DocuSP still comes up and you can submit a job, but the job does not print.
  • Page 7 DocuSP-based printers is secure. Xerox is committed to providing a level of security that allows the DocuSP controller to be a good network citizen in the response to current security intrusions. Additional security beyond this remains the responsibility of the customer.
  • Page 8 Managing the Log File The Disk Overwrite process maintains a detailed log of the entire Disk Overwrite process, including the start and stop time for each partition, the partition name and boundaries, and error messages. The log file is cumulative and every time the Disk Overwrite process is run, the details are added to the existing log.
