You can use the initvol command in volutil. This will not totally remove all traces if your extremely paranoid about it. The definitife destruction way is to destroy the discs, but if your selling the machine its a ctach 22.
HP might have a tool with which to do this with the CE tools. I would say talk to your local CE and find out.
If you have a windows machine with a scsi controller you can get software that overwrites the discs with random numbers mutliple times. MPE should be able to reinstall onto those discs.
Look at http://sourceforge.net/projects/ubcd/
It has autocalve on it. Then you ca do it on an intel based machine.

If all your data files are residing on an user volume set, you simply need to close the volume set (VSCLOSE
If the system does not have user volume set and all system and data files reside on the default system volume set, then:
1) Do an ISL>INSTALL, do a DSTAT ALL, check that all drives except ldev#1 are in UNKNOWN or SCRATCH state, run VOLUTIL, SCRATCHVOL those in LONER state.
2) Still in VOLUTIL, FORMATVOL each drive, this may take some time.
3) If you wish to 'ERASE' ldev#1, you must INSTALL to another drive, then boot on that drive, in order to access the old ldev#1.
