I got Syncrify running in a jail on FreeNas 11.1-U6. I made a default jail, and followed the instructions here and on the download page. It won't run right out the gate, though. I had to edit the run.sh script to change the shell to "#!/bin/sh" (bash is not installed to /bin in FreeNAS), and change the location of java to "/usr/local/bin/java". After that, the server started up just fine.

For the update and restart to function properly you need to adjust the AppConfig.xml file. The
<parameter value="jre/bin/java" type="1" name="jvmPath"/>
<parameter value="/usr/local/bin/java" type="1" name="jvmPath"/>

AppConfig.xml change the java Path value to /user/local/bin/java
