I have AHV nodes which have been disconnected on network, I am looking for a method to delete the data on each node through console locally. I have found a command but not sure if this will remove disk or wipe the data? Can someone please guide?

Command: 

ncli> disk delete id="id" [force="force" ]

running AOS 5.15.3

With this command you just remove disk from cluster it does  not wipe its data. I would suggest you to remove it first anyway then just format it with linux format commands.
