MongoDB - WARNING: shell and server versions do not match

15 July,2019 by Rambler

Question :

Getting this WARNING when logging on to mongo


MongoDB shell version v3.4.9

connecting to: mongodb://

MongoDB server version: 3.6.12

WARNING: shell and server versions do not match


I’ve restarted mongo which hasn’t fixed the issue .

Can I install manually or is this something pushed down from Ops Manager ?

Answer: In this situation there are two options

Copy the latest binary into /usr/bin or use the latest mongo shell version.

To get the information require , execute this command ps -ef | grep -i mongod

ps -ef | grep -i mongod

mongod    8138     1 43 May27 ?        18-05:38:54 /var/lib/mongodb-mms-automation/mongodb-linux-x86_64-3.6.12-ent/bin/mongod -f /xtra200/mongodb/appnew_0/automation-mongod.conf


option 1:Copy the latest binaries into /usr/bin

cp /var/lib/mongodb-mms-automation/mongodb-linux-x86_64-3.6.12-ent/bin/* /usr/bin


option 2:Use the latest version of mongo shell version 





MongoDB shell version v3.6.12

connecting to: mongodb://

Implicit session: session { "id" : UUID("xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx") }

MongoDB server version: 3.6.12
