I upgraded our MongoDB binaries from 2.2.5 to 2.4.9. I did not follow one of the considerations prior to upgrading:
- To upgrade to 2.4, sharded clusters must upgrade following the meta-data upgrade procedure.
The reason, not that it matters, is because I didn't think it was needed since we do not have any sharded collections in our environment. So, instead of following the sharded cluster upgrade, I followed the replica set upgrade procedure.
My question is, can I successfully run the meta-data upgrade without having to rollback to 2.2.5?
