Remove Group from Automation

When the Cloud Manager Free Trial period expires, Cloud Manager Automation is disabled for your Cloud Manager Groups. As Automation no longer manages your MongoDB processes, you need to remove your MongoDB processes from Automation then configure them to use Monitoring and Backup without Automation.

To stop using Automation with your Groups, you should:

1

Verify the Automation Agent version.

Verify the package version for your Automation Agent is 2.7.1 or later.

Note

This version is not shown in Cloud Manager. You must check the version of the Automation Agent package on the server.

OS Method
RPM Linux distributions
yum list mongodb-mms-automation-agent-manager.x86_64
Ubuntu Linux
apt-cache show mongodb-mms-automation-agent-manager | grep Version
Other Linux distributions or Mac OS X

By default, when the archive file is downloaded and extracted, the name of the directory where the Automation Agent is installed includes the version number.
