About Lab Configuration File

Hi Kanika,

I’m facing an issue about the path of the configuration file. It seems that the command choose the original file etc/mongod.conf. How can I force the program to choose my new created file in my local machine ?
Many thanks.

The Shared folder is accessible. So I put there my mongod.conf file. It works fine now

You need to stop the existing mongod and restart it by altering the startup string

mongod --config < path to new config file >

Make sure the file has been recently saved and is in your vagrant/shared folder.

Hi Kanika ,

I have modified my configuration and executing below command to start using that file.
But no output is displayed.

vagrant@m103:~$ mongod --config /home/vagrant/mongod.conf

Modified Configuration is below:-

dbPath: /data/db/
enabled: true

destination: file
logAppend: true
path: /var/log/mongodb/mongod.log

port: 27000

timeZoneInfo: /usr/share/zoneinfo

authorization: enabled

Below is result after running validating lab config:

vagrant@m103:~$ validate_lab_configuration_file
