This is a suggestion for making the content better.
The requirements for starting the mongod process for the Lab - Launching Mongod is stated as
- run on port 27000
- data files are stored in /data/db/
- listens to connections from the IP address 192.168.103.100 and localhost
- authentication is enabled
Out of the 4 requirements, first two were covered in Lecture: The Mongod, while the later two is not having any mention in the Lecture Video or the Lecture Notes.
I think it’s better to specify those two requirements for the Lab also in the Lecture Notes.
If the author meant the user to check for those options in the mongod manual, I think explicitly stating that in the Lab Instruction will make it some more clear for a beginner audience to proceed with.
