Delete all objects on a partition. Because this is a destructive command, the user is prompted to proceed/quit before the erasure occurs.
NOTE This command requires Luna Network HSM Appliance Software 7.8.1 or newer. It cannot be used on STC partitions; the Partition SO must use LunaCM at the client for partition management.
For password-authenticated HSMs, if the password isn't entered on the command line, the user will be prompted for it interactively. User input will be echoed as asterisks.
For multifactor quorum-authenticated HSMs, Luna PED action is required, and the Crypto Officer (black) PED key is requested. Any password provided at the command line is ignored. However, if a PIN was specified when the HSM partition was created, that PIN must be entered at the Luna PED keypad.
Users with the following privileges can perform this command:
partition clear -partition <partition_name> [-password <password>] [-force]
|-force||-f||Force the action without prompting.|
|-partition <name>||-par||Specifies the name of the partition from which all objects are to be erased. To obtain a list of partitions, use the partition list command.|
|-password <password>||-pas||The password to be used as login credential by the partition's user. This parameter is required on password-authenticated HSMs.|
