Dear MongoDB compass experts,
I am new to MongoDB, and just installed MongoDB server is a 3-server primary/secondary cluster on Ununtu servers. I want to install compass so that I could administrate the MongoDB on my laptop (which runs Windows 10). In other words, the MongoDB cluster is on Ubuntu on remote machines, but I want to use compass on my laptop which run Windows.
I have the following questions:
- Where should I install compass? On my laptop (windows10), or on the Ubuntu host ?
- Since the MongoDB server is a primary/secondary cluster (1 primary + 2 secondary, each has different hostname and IP address). As you know, sometimes if the primary is down, one of the secondary will become the primary, hence how to let compass know the situation and hence always connect to the right server ? Or compass could automatically detect this?
I appreciate your kind help!
