One of my clients (small size business) has just bought a Ultra 6 Plus NAS.
Since I'm going to be the one maintaining it, I'd like to be sure my changes to the system won't harm it (and especially the data on it).
That is why I'm curious if it would be possible creating a virtual system comparable to the RAIDiator OS (in either VMWare or VirtualBox).
I know I could create a debian image but I'd like it to be more realistic (not necessarilly with RAID drives.
Is there any way I could do this?
I have quite a bit of Linux knowledge but have never built a kernel from scratch.
I managed to build the kernel from the sources I found on http://www.readynas.com/?page_id=2324
I'm stuck what I should do next though.
Does anyone have an idea on how to proceed (and if it's actually possible doing this)?
