While setting up some collections in a mongo database to be sharded, I entered the name of one of them wrong (typo letter at the end).

When I do db.printShardingStatus(), I see that inexistent collection sitting there and looking dumb. How can I remove it from my sharding config without breaking anything.

Thanks! :)


You should read the page on removeshard for the details, but

db.runCommand({"removeshard" : "server:port"});is what you're looking for.
