comment Is this a valid backup strategy for MongoDB?
You could connect to any one of the peers from your list of peer nodes (it could be any primary, secondary, arbiter, or hidden node), ask that peer who the secondaries are (rs.status() and loop through result["members"]), and connect to one of the secondaries to perform the backup.

comment Air is out in server closet, not going to be fixed until tomorrow… What to do?
No, but it is a suggestion for an action plan beginning the day after. Once this concrete problem is solved today, start migrating to a public cloud tomorrow.

Your last comment should probably be part of your main answer because it's a key part of clustering and scaling a chef-server installation.
