Configuration of mongod

Dear Tess Sluijter
I have tried to configure mu mongod using this format “mongod --port 27000 --dbpath /data/db --auth --bind_ip 192.168. 103.100,127.0.0.1” I need to have validate using as follows command
“validate_lab_configuration_file” but it gave me the following messagesconfig

For starters there’s an errant space in your command line :wink: There’s not supposed to be a space inside an IP address.

But aside from that, the validate is expecting that your configure mongod through a config file that you pass with -f. So you should put all the config in a file and pass it with -f.

These config files are going to become very important in this course, so you’d better get used to them quickly :slight_smile:

EDIT:
BTW, you can use the @-symbol if you want to ping somebody directly. Instead of writing my name, writing @tess_sluijter would have given me a notification.
