I just upgraded from MongoDB 3.2 to 3.4.1.

/etc/mongod.conf had a multiple BindIP:

bindIp: [,]

This is not working anymore. I get this error :

Scalar option 'net.bindIp' must be a single value

According to the documentation, It must be correct : https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/configuration-options/#net.bindIP

Any idea ?

Remove []. so solution is: bindIp:, and remember, no space characters anywhere in that string.
