Integrating Syncrify with a NAS device
There are two ways you can use Syncrify with your NAS device:
- Install Syncrify right on your NAS device. Most NAS appliances are nothing but a Linux machine with plenty of hard disk. If you have Terminal access to this device (you can open an SSH or Telnet session), you should be able to install Syncrify right on this machine. Depending upon the type of Linux distribution used, you may or may not have to install Java. Refer to this page to see how to install Java and Syncrify on a FreeNAS device.
- Mount the drives in your NAS device on any other Linux machine and then install Syncrify on this intermediary machine. Keep the following point in mind if you decide to use a Windows machine as this intermediary. Mapped drives on Windows are not available to applications that run as a service. Therefore, you will have to use UNC style path to refer to the drive on your NAS device. Additionally, you have to configure the remote NAS drive in a way that it does not prompt for login Id and passwords
