I am not the only one to post how to do this see here - http://www.readynas.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=18139&start=15#p297737
and here http://support.crashplan.com/doku.php/how_to/configure_a_headless_client
Steps for x86 ReadyNas Only:
Old way,still works but uses java 6, which is out of date:
- Code: Select all
1. See Step one below
2. See Step two below
3. See Step three below
4. Once logged onto your readynas as "root" your ready to get the the software setup. Keep in mind that when you are running as root, you have elevated priviliges and you can do anything you want, including messing things up, so go slow and take your time :)
- First thing we need to do is edit the sources.list, we are going to use vi which is not a friendly editor
but is installed on any base *nix system and in this case will get the job done. Lets edit the file, at
the prompt - vi /etc/apt/sources.list, arrow down to the last line and then arrow over to the
last letter and hit the "a" button for append and then hit "enter" to get a new line and then paste
"deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-backports etch-backports main non-free" .
- To get out of vi and save the file "shift:" will get you the colon prompt at the bottom, then to save
and exit enter "x", if you made a mistake and you do not want to save your work at the colon enter "q!"
and that will quit without saving any changes. Once you exit and save your sources list should look
like this, "more /etc/apt/sources.list" -
deb http://www.readynas.com/packages 4.2.19/
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian etch main
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-backports etch-backports main non-free
5. Now we need to update our package list and install Java.
- enter "apt-get update"
- Now we need to modify configuration dialog selection so we can accept the java Terms and conditions.
- enter "dpkg-reconfigure debconf"
This will ask you to select a dialong frontend, select option 1 - Dialog, then it will ask you for
the level, select option 3 - Medium.
- Now lets install java, enter "apt-get install sun-java6-jre", it will download the package and start to
install it where it will ask for you to accept the terms and conditions, select yes and complete the
- Modify the deb configuration and change it back, enter "dpkg-reconfigure debconf"
This will ask you to select a dialong frontend, select option 6 - Noninteractive, then it will
ask you for the level, select option 3 - Medium (not sure if this was the default).

The full instructions can be found here - http://minimserver.com/ejre-installer.html I will try to list just the steps for x86 ReadyNas:
1. Go to Oracle and down load the latest embeeded java version l@@k for this version - x86 Linux Small Footprint – Headless - http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/embedded/downloads/javase/index.html
*Note you will have to accept Oracles Terms and Conditions and create an account to download the file
2. Download file and copy the java file to /c/backup/ on your ReadyNas
3. Download the EJRE Readynas Addon see the link above for the full instructions, the addon can be found here - http://minimserver.com/downloads/EJREInstaller-0.10-readynas-x86.bin
4. Install EJRE Addon and this will install the java version that you placed in /c/backup/
5. Verify that java is working, time to jump to the command line to finish the installation. Install the Enable Root SSH addon - http://www.readynas.com/download/addons/x86/4.2/EnableRootSSH_1.0-x86.bin Complete installation by rebooting your readynas.
6. You will need to get a ssh client for your desktop/laptop, here is one for winblows (putty) - http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/putty.exe, nothing to install, just download and place on your desktop or somewhere you can find it.
7. Open putty and SSH into your readynas, enter the IP address and when it prompts for username enter "root" and then your normal raidar/frontpage "password". Once logged in verify java operation by entering the following :
- Code: Select all
8. Now we can install Crashplan.
- Download the latest linux crashplan version
enter "wget the latest version that is listed on crashplan for linux, see below"
Here is the main download page, just make sure you get the latest version -
http://www.crashplan.com/consumer/download.html?os=Linux, this will download andplace this in your
9. Once the diownload has completed lets extract the files which are tarred and zipped.
enter "tar -xvf CrashPlan_3.0.3_Linux.tgz" or whichever version you downloaded, this will extract all of the files
and place them in a folder called "CrashPlan-install".
enter "cd "CrashPlan-install" and then run the installer, enter "./install.sh", this will start the installer
ask for you to accept the terms and conditions and ask questions where to install etc..You can accept the defaults
for most, however when it prompts you for the default crashplan backup directory, you can go with the default or
provide a directory that you have already established for that purpose, e.g., "/crash-backup" whatever your share
that you created without any slashes, this actual is a pointer to "crash-backup -> /c/crashplan-backup"
Here are the questions, most you accept the defaults, in this case I chose to specify a different Directory -
Do you accept and agree to be bound by the EULA? (yes/no) yes
What directory do you wish to install CrashPlan to? [/usr/local/crashplan]
What directory do you wish to link the CrashPlan executable to? [/usr/local/bin]
What directory do you wish to store backups in? [/usr/local/var/crashplan] /crash-backup
What directory contains your SYSV init scripts? [/etc/init.d]
What directory contains your runlevel init links? [/etc/rc2.d]
CrashPlan will install to: /usr/local/crashplan
And put links to binaries in: /usr/local/bin
And store datas in: /crash-backup
Your init.d dir is: /etc/init.d
Your current runlevel directory is: /etc/rc2.d
Is this correct? (y/n) [y] y
10. Configure crashplan on the readynas, in order to do this you need to download and install crashplan on a local PC,
using linux, winblows or Mac - http://www.crashplan.com/consumer/download.html once that has been
done we need to tunnel from the PC to the readynas, the already have this detailed on the crashplan site
called a headless install - http://support.crashplan.com/doku.php/how_to/configure_a_headless_client
*Note while configuring the Crashplan client -the client will show your shares twice - as links (with an arrow as part of the icon)
and under the "C" folder. It won't back up the links, you need to select the folders under the "C" folder. If you try the other way, the
backup "succeeds", but doesn't back anything up. Thanks to StephenB for this update!
Once the configuration is complete you should be good to go..
I'm sure I have left something out or not fully explained something, if so let me knoiw and I will update the posting..
