Deploy a Standalone MongoDB Instance


You can deploy a standalone MongoDB instance managed by Ops Manager. Use standalone instances for testing and development. Do not use these deployments, which lack replication and high availability, for production systems. For all production deployments use replica sets. See Deploy a Replica Set for production deployments.


You must have an existing server to which to deploy. For testing purposes, you can use your localhost, or another machine to which you have access.


If you provision your own server and if you use MongoDB Enterprise, you must install the prerequisite packages to the server before deploying MongoDB Enterprise on it.



Select the Deployment tab and then the Deployment page.


Click edit mode, and click Add and select Create New Standalone.


Configure the standalone MongoDB instance.

Enter information as required and click Apply. For descriptions of Advanced Options, see Advanced Options for MongoDB Deployments.


Click Review & Deploy to review the configuration.

Ops Manager displays the full configuration for you to review.


Click Confirm & Deploy.

To view deployment progress, click View Agent Logs and select an agent at the top of the Agent Logs page. To check for updated entries, refresh the page.

If you diagnose an error and need to correct the deployment configuration, click Edit Configuration and then click Edit Configuration again. Reconfigure the deployment through the deployment arrow button or through the Add button. If you cannot find a solution, shut down the deployment. When you complete your changes, click Review & Deploy and then Confirm & Deploy.
