Yes, you read it right! I’m not able to fork… mongod process whilst enabling Storage Level encryption using KMIP.
Problem: Using --fork and --logpath options fails to start up the server
Workaround: If you encounter this problem, omit the
--logpath options for this lab
Explanation: Curriculum Engineers? Anyone?
Below is a replay of my actions (follow the numbers):
- Initial try that included
--logpath. The green blocks are redacted parts for obvious reasons.
- Shows there’s an error
- A view of the last couple of lines of the log file. The first error message states that “No such file or directory exists” which is wrong because the file most certainly exist and the parent/sub folders have the right permissions. Read on!
- Second try without
- Success! Ready to accept connections! And this was how I passed this lab.
NB: I also tried from a fresh machine (i.e. destroy and provision the database machine) and still had the same issue. In addition, I didn’t alter any settings/upgrade any packages/dbs. I’m using exactly what came with this lab.
Anyone else experienced this problem?
