Where should I run the Validation script?

I successfully completed the “Launching Mongod” lab, but I’m wondering what is meant by the bolded text portion of the statement below:

“When you’re finished, run the following validation script in your vagrant and outside the mongo shell and enter the validation key you receive below.”

I just ran the validation inside of the vagrant box and got the correct validation code - so I’m wondering what I’m missing.

Outside mongo shell means you should not be connected to mongo
Run the validator script at os prompt which you seem to be completed

Hi @Michael_27198,

As @Ramachandra_37567 mentioned, you should not run the validator inside the mongo shell. You are supposed to run the validator at the OS prompt inside vagrant environment.

Yup, this is what you were supposed to do :slight_smile:

Hope it helps!

If you have any other query then please feel free to create another thread.
