Hey guys, I am going to sell my unit on Ebay with the hard drives included. I used Killdisk to wipe all of the drives and then did a factory reset. Should I ship it in this state and just let the buyer know what the server password is or are there other recommended ways?

TIA!

Do the factory reset, but don't set it up.

Thanks for the quick reply!

So after the factory reset, at what step do I stop?

Also, what should my instructions be to the buyer as to how he/she can access the server and complete the set up?

After the server reboots and has the pulsing blue lights, and the Client software has tried to start the Setup, just power off the server. The new owner should be able to power on the server, stick the Client Install disk into their PC, and do the initial setup with their own password, servername, etc.
