I attempted to create the csrs replica set. When I created the 3 nodes, which seemed to go OK they appeared to spontaneously create the replica set without invoking initiate(). I had the primary and 2 secondary nodes, but without any authorized users and I could not create the root user. I could not shutdown any of the nodes to start again because I was not authorized to do so. I had to run vagrant halt in order to start over.
I had previously created the csrs replica set, brought up mongos and connected to a sharded cluster while following the lecture without a problem. The issue occurred when I tried to do it again.
Could you explain how this can happen?
How can I stop this from happening so I can start over to do the lab?
