Getting error message in mongo shell while connecting to Sandbox cluster

Hi All,

While connecting to Sandbox Cluster from the mongo Shell I am getting below message.

''Error while trying to show server startup warnings: user is not allowed to do action [getLog] on [admin.] "

I am confused if I am connected or not and why I am getting this message. Attaching cmd and Connect to cluster screenshot for the same.

Help is much appreciated.

Connect%20to%20Sanbox%20String

Mongo%20Shell

Please ignore and continue with your work as you are already connected to your cluster
Its just a warning message which says you don’t have privileges to do actions on admin DB

Hello Ramachandra,

Thanks very much for your reply.

Can I please ask the reason behind this message as I followed same steps from the lecture video except one step where I chose region as " Mumbai (ap-south-1) " whereas in the video the region was select as " N. Virginia (us-east-1)".

The reason I chose region as Mumbai because I thought it does not matter as long as I am selecting a region with FREE TIER AVAILABLE.

Thank you once again for your help !

You did right thing by selecting Mumbai
In video it is USA as it is appropriate for their region
Those warning messages are not related to region
Basically user m001-student is given less privileges
If you give admin privs like clusteradmin,readwriteanydatabase roles those messages can be suppressed

Please go thru our forums-many threads available on how to fix it
