From what I can understand/read it should suffice to have the filesystem as XFS and the dbpath set to a folder on that disk. What else do I need to do to fix this? I moved the whole db folder from the initialized ext4 folder it was mounted on in the template. Is there a lock file I need to clear or something so that it re-checks the filesystem rather than thinking it's the old ext4 ?

  • This startup message is only a warning, so you can ignore it if isn't relevant. What specific version of MongoDB server are you running? The journal config comment includes a suspiciously old docs link. – Stennie Aug 29 at 10:12
  • Iirc it was 3.2. Its based on the mongodb bitnami template in Azure marketplace. – user4370259 Aug 30 at 16:09
