I have a Replica Set consisting of three nodes:

-Server1 (Primary)

-Server2 (Secondary)

-Server3 (Secondary)

When the primary server (still Server1) is down, a voting is started and Server2 get elected to be the new primary node, this happens all automatically.

So now we have a Replica Set that looks like this:

-Server1 (Down)

-Server2 (Primary)

-Server3 (Secondary)

Now also Server2 goes down, leaving us with only Server3, but why is no voting being automatically being started? I have to manually configure the rs.config and change the priority and voting of Server3, for it to become the new Primary node. Is this intended or am I missing a configuration to make the only node left the new Primary node?
