Lab Configure A Shared Cluster - mongos configDB

Hello,

So I note in the example config file for the mongos that we have

sharding:
configDB: m103-csrs/192.168.103.100:26001

In the lecture video, it states that you need to name all the nodes. Has there been and update in a later version of MongoDB say 3.6, that just requires one of the nodes to be up.

Thanks

@NMullins According to this https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/configuration-options/

(look for sharding.configDB)

you can specify all members but need a minimum of one.

But you would need all members if a node was down I assume.

I will put another page down on my “Too read list” :slight_smile:
