Cannot get collections for video database

I’m using this command to connect to class mongodb cluster
"c:\Program Files\MongoDB\Server\4.0\bin"\mongo.exe "mongodb://,," --authenticationDatabase admin --ssl -u m121 -p aggregations --norc
And it worked fine earlier, but today i got this error:
MongoDB Enterprise Cluster0-shard-0:PRIMARY> show dbs

I also do not see any collections in this db in compass. What can possibly cause such problem?

@ Anton_25643

You will find the collections in the ‘aggregations’ database. Do use aggregations then do show collections. Good luck.


Chapter 2 Lab 1 expects results from video db. How to complete the lab?

Are you not able to see the db?
show dbs
then switch to video DB by
use video

@Nithyabharathy as explained in the other two multiple threads that you’ve posted in, use the aggregations db alone. All other dbs are not available for this course.
