This DroboApps depends on the locale and java8 DroboApps. Please make sure they are installed or Crashplan will not start.

To configure the CrashPlan engine you have to install the software on your machine, and redirect the GUI to connect with the Drobo. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Edit the file:
    • ~/Library/Application Support/CrashPlan/ui.properties on OSX
    • C:\Program Files\CrashPlan\conf\ui.properties on Windows
    • /usr/local/crashplan/conf/ui.properties on Linux
  2. Add the line: serviceHost=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, replacing xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx with the ip address of the Drobo.
  3. Save the file, and start the app. It will ask for the credentials to be used on the Drobo.

Once logged in, if the folder selection screen shows the path /mnt/DroboFS/Shares, then congratulations, you have CrashPlan on your Drobo.

Don't forget to secure access to your Crashplan installation by enabling password access in
"Settings" > "Security" > "Require account password to access CrashPlan desktop application"
