URGENT HELP - Mongo seed error


I’m in dire need of immediate help! I’m in the process of updating a website in Meteor, I wasn’t in charge of the development, but I picked up at the last moment and everything seemed to work fine in the test server, but in the production server I’m getting this Error: Could not locate any valid servers in initial seed list. I’m currently using the build command with pm2 to deploy.

Full error:

What is your mongo connection string? Can you connect by the hand (from terminal)?


It seems that Meteor can’t connect to your database servers. Here’s a couple of my first thoughts:

Are you using Meteor with the oplog url?

  • Can it access all servers in the list?
  • Primary down no re-election because of invalid secondaries?
  • Typo in the oplog

** Using single instance **

  • Valid MONGO_URL?
  • Ports open?
  • Cloud accesible?
  • Meteor server IP whitelisted in Mongo config?
