MongoDB Replica Set Sync data by Copying Data Files from Another Member

by Ben10   Last Updated August 13, 2019 22:06 PM - source

I used MongoDB 3.6 and was following MongoDB documentation:

to do a full copy of data from Primary node to another mongod instance. I copied both admin and local plus all database folders into the new node. After all data are ready, added new node into replica set. It seems the replica set starts another initial sync and copy data from Primary to the new node. I got 400 GB data in primary node, so after a few hours Secondary node data size reach 600 GB and no disk space left and cause the sync fail. So it seems MongoDB still copying all data from Primary to Secondary even after I did this data copy manually. More surprisingly, it keeps the data I copied and continue to do its own data sync. Any suggestion?
