Title

MongoDB Security, Usage, Installation, and De-installation

Reference

Commvault software uses the MongoDB Enterprise 3.0.2 database program for storage and retrieval of comments and replies associated with Edge Drive objects. During installation, MongoDB access control is enabled and a username and password applied. The MongoDB service is set to run with authentication mode ON.

By default, MongoDB binds to a port on the local interface only (127.0.0.1) and communicates exclusively with CommServe services. All attempts to create remote connections are denied. CommServe host administrator can change the port on which MongoDB listens.  Port number can be found in the registry HKLM..\Database\nMongoPort

Starting with V11 Service Pack 4, MongoDB software was installed by default on the CommServe host. Starting with V11 Service Pack 6, the installation of the MongoDB is optional. The MongoDB option can be found under Tools when you select packages to install. We recommend installing the MongoDB on the CommServe host when you plan to implement use-cases to support comments and reply/threads against shared content objects; for example Edge Drive.  We plan on extending more content sharing cases to other shared objects over time.

You should uninstall MongoDB package through the individual package option of the Commvault ContentStore program found in Windows Control Panel's Programs and Features applet.
