FC-AL disk - Can I connect to a PC

Hi All.

I have about 20 FC-AL disks (sun part number 540-6571-01) left over from when we used to have SUN servers and storage arrays. Before we can dispose of them, we need to make sure they're completely erased of all data. This is where the problem is. All our SUN hardware was disposed of before we found these disks left over so we have no SUN hardware to connect up the drives.

Can these drives be connected to a PC via an adapter? If so, which one would we need? The alterantive is a large hammer, but I'd prefer not to do that. Smilie

It is do-able but you need a special adapter.
