Installing Syncrify on Synology DS209+ Error
I contacted tech support about this issue on a DS211J. Here is the information that
I received after I provided them access to my NAS device.
As you can see it is not a complete step-by-step but it does point us in the right

************ Response from Synametrics tech support
I see two problems:
1. The Synology device contains an ARM cpu, which is not compatible with Intel's x86
architecture. The version of Java shipped with Syncrify is for the Intel CPU. You
will have to download and install the appropriate JVM from here.
2. Second problem has to do with how Syncrify starts up at boot time. The "wrapper"
program that comes with Syncrify is also for Intel architecture. This is not that
big of a problem because you can always write a script to load it up at boot time.
First install Java on your Synology. You might have to contact Synology support to
find out which download is application for the CPU version you are using. The CPUINFO
on your box show Feroceon 88FR131 rev 1 (v5l) , which I think is ARMV5 but cannot
say that with certainty.
Once Java is installed, you will have to modify /opt/Syncrify/run.sh file and change
the path from jre/bin/java to whatever the new path is and execute run.sh to start
Finally, write a script that will call run.sh at boot time.
