MongoDB Compatibility Matrix

This page describes compatibility between Cloud Manager features and MongoDB.

MongoDB 2.4 reached its End of Life date in March 2016

Cloud Manager removes support for MongoDB 2.4 deployments.

Compatible MongoDB Versions

  • Cloud Manager can automate and monitor MongoDB deployments running versions 2.6 or later.
  • Cloud Manager can back up MongoDB deployments running versions 2.6 or later.


To monitor a deployment running MongoDB 3.0 or later, you must use Monitoring Agent version 2.7.0 or later.

To manage PowerPPC Linux-based hosts, you must use Automation Agent or later.

MongoDB Deployment Types

Using Cloud Manager, you can configure all MongoDB deployment types: sharded clusters, replica sets, and standalones.

The shards in a sharded cluster must be replica sets. That is, a shard cannot be a standalone mongod. If you must run a shard as a single mongod (which provides no redundancy or failover), run the shard as a single-member replica set.


You may not upgrade a sharded MongoDB deployment to version 3.4 if the deployment uses mirrored mongod instances as config servers. To allow the sharded deployment to be upgraded, see Convert Config Servers to a Replica Set. The conversion requires that the sharded deployment run MongoDB version 3.2.4 or later. Deployments running previous versions must upgrade to version 3.2.4 before an upgrade to version 3.4.
