Is there any sheet/form to be filled, or are there any guidelines to be followed before finishing up/get rid off - an old/used server? I mean before destroying that equipment or before releasing it or send it to the garbage?

    I would think that any guidedlines regarding disposal of equipment should come from the owner of said hardware. If this is a company assett and there are no established guidelines, it might be a good time to propose something and get it set as the guidelines going forward. We always wiped our equipment clean and donated them to a charitable cause....but ensuring that any/all data was removed first was the critical piece. If the equipment is unreliable, then we stripped it down for parts.

    That makes more sense. There are policies you can look up on the internet, search for { server disposal policy } and similar. For example, read through CA's Considerations for Developing an IT Disposal Policy document. It should give you more than enough to get started. -- Tom
