I'm trying to run MongoDB under a Windows Managed Service Account. This works fine for memcached on the same server, but when I run the MongoDB account I get this:
Windows could not start the MongoDB ervice on Local Computer. Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
Adjusting the file permissions so the account can write (or have fullcontrol) inside the MongoDb directory (where binaries, logs and data is stored gave me this:
Windows could not start the MongoDB on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 100.
The log file now says this:
exception in initAndListen: 98 Unable to create/open lock file: C:\data\db\mongod.lock
So, obviously I had a remaining mongod.exe running.
