Hello, My mongodb likely had an unclean shutdown and i have spent days trying to get it back up. I am able to start a new mongodb instance in a new location but cannot get my old one with all of my old collections and indexes to work properly. When I try to repair it, it gives the following message: [ec2-user@ip-172-31-30-192 tmp]$ mongod --repair --dbpath /data 2017-08-20T16:20:30.951+0000 I CONTROL [initandlisten] MongoDB starting : pid=31865 port=27017 dbpath=/data 64-bit host=ip-172-31-30-192 2017-08-20T16:20:30.951+0000 I CONTROL [initandlisten] db version v3.2.16 2017-08-20T16:20:30.951+0000 I CONTROL [initandlisten] git version: 056bf45128114e44c5358c7a8776fb582363e094 2017-08-20T16:20:30.951+0000 I CONTROL [initandlisten] OpenSSL version: OpenSSL 1.0.0-fips 29 Mar 2010 2017-08-20T16:20:30.951+0000 I CONTROL [initandlisten] allocator: tcmalloc 2017-08-20T16:20:30.951+0000 I CONTROL [initandlisten] modules: none 2017-08-20T16:20:30.951+0000 I CONTROL [initandlisten] build environment: 2017-08-20T16:20:30.951+0000 I CONTROL [initandlisten] distmod: amazon 2017-08-20T16:20:30.951+0000 I CONTROL [initandlisten] distarch: x86_64 2017-08-20T16:20:30.951+0000 I CONTROL [initandlisten] target_arch: x86_64 2017-08-20T16:20:30.951+0000 I CONTROL [initandlisten] options: { repair: true, storage: { dbPath: "/data" } } 2017-08-20T16:20:30.972+0000 I - [initandlisten] Detected data files in /data created by the 'wiredTiger' storage engine, so setting the active storage engine to 'wiredTiger'. 2017-08-20T16:20:30.972+0000 I STORAGE [initandlisten] Detected WT journal files.

mark.agarunov commented on Tue, 29 Aug 2017 19:14:57 +0000: Hello anujgupta201121, Unfortunately, this error indicates that there was corruption on the disk. In this situation, my best recommendation would be to resync the affected node or restore from a backup if possible. Thanks, Mark anujgupta201121 commented on Wed, 23 Aug 2017 15:33:32 +0000: From my understanding, it is actually the mongodb_catalog file that is also corrupted. Is there any way you would be able to repair that? anujgupta201121 commented on Mon, 21 Aug 2017 22:22:46 +0000: Unfortunately it did not work. I ran it on port 27117. I attached the log file. Keep in mind i am running a new mongod instance temporarily with empty data on the default port till i am able to get the old one up. It is what you likely will see in the logs. I added the configuration file as well.

I've attached a repair attempt of the files you've provided. Would you please extract these files and replace them in your $dbpath and let us know if it resolves the issue? If you are still seeing errors after replacing these files, please provide the complete logs from mongod so that we can further investigate. Additionally, if this issue persists, please provide the following information: What kind of underlying storage mechanism are you using? Are the storage devices attached locally or over the network? Are the disks SSDs or HDDs? What kind of RAID and/or volume management system are you using? Would you please check the integrity of your disks? Has the database always been running this version of MongoDB? If not please describe the upgrade/downgrade cycles the database has been through. Have you manipulated (copied or moved) the underlying database files? If so, was mongod running? Have you ever restored this instance from backups? What method do you use to create backups? When was the underlying filesystem last checked and is it currently marked clean? Thanks, Mark anujgupta201121 commented on Mon, 21 Aug 2017 21:51:49 +0000: Really appreciate you looking into this. I have uploaded the WiredTiger.turtle mark.agarunov commented on Mon, 21 Aug 2017 21:24:26 +0000: Hello anujgupta201121, Thank you for the report. Would you please upload the WiredTiger.turtle file in addition to the WiredTiger.wt file that you've already uploaded so we can attempt a repair? Thanks, Mark
