Change the Version of MongoDB


For Ops Manager managed MongoDB, Ops Manager supports safe automatic upgrade and downgrade operations between releases of MongoDB while maximizing the availability of your deployment. Ops Manager supports upgrade and downgrade operations for sharded clusters, replica sets,and standalone MongoDB instances.


Before changing a deployment’s MongoDB version:

  • Consult the following documents for any special considerations or application compatibility issues:
  • Plan the version change during a predefined maintenance window.
  • Before changing version on a production environment, change versions on a staging environment that reproduces your production environment to ensure your configuration is compatible with all changes.
  • To monitor or back up MongoDB 3.0 deployments, you must install Ops Manager 1.6 or higher. To monitor a MongoDB 3.0 deployment, you must also run Monitoring Agent version 2.7.0 or higher.
