Mongod issue -- HostnameCanonicalizationWorker

Guys… stumbled into yet another issue… while trying to do mongod --noauth, it hangs on this piece:

I NETWORK [HostnameCanonicalizationWorker] Starting hostname canonicalization worker

I’ve tried a few times already and I’ve got to ^C to get out of there. Any ideas/suggestions? Let me know if you need the whole trace. Thanks!

Hi Samuel_00552,

That is an Information message at startup. I don’t need the whole trace ! Although, I’m going to need more information in order to help.

Are you using the supplied environments ? What lecture or assignment are you working on, etc. You may just need to use --fork to run the mongod server in the background

Hope that helps,


Even I am facing the same error

Hi Amit_51052,

Then my comment to Samuel_00552 applies to your issue as well - try using the --fork option.

Hope that helps,
