MongoDB Enterprise provides various features not available in the MongoDB Community edition, such as:
- In-Memory Storage Engine
- Kerberos Authentication
- LDAP Proxy Authentication and LDAP Authorization
- Encryption at Rest
The following steps outline the procedure to upgrade a standalone
mongod from the MongoDB Community Edition to the MongoDB
Enterprise Edition. For example, the steps can be used to upgrade
MongoDB 4.0 Community to MongoDB 4.0 Enterprise.
Do not use these instructions to upgrade to another release version. To upgrade release versions, refer to the appropriate release upgrade instructions, such as Upgrade to MongoDB 5.0.
Depending on your operating system, you can install the MongoDB Enterprise binaries by using a package manager or by downloading the binaries manually.
Shut down the
mongod Community instance.
Restart with the Enterprise
mongod, specifying the
same configuration options(e.g. same data directory,
configuration file, etc.).
