Lab - Change the Default DB Path problem with validate

Hi @Lara_18146,

As I can check here, you need to bring up the vagrant environment first and ssh into the vagrant instance by running the following commands in terminal from within the m103-vagrant-env directory:

vagrant up --provision
vagrant ssh

When you are connected to the vagrant environment, then create your configuration file in the /shared folder and use the following command to start the mongod process:

mongod -f /shared/

I hope it helps!!

Please let me know, if you have any questions.


Thanks for outlining the process. I thought I had everything but I never connected to port 27000 after using the config file.
