Use CosmoDB as Mongo replacement

Technical Support
  • Hi I am trying to do a fresh install on CosmoDB azure's mongo compatible database. Link To Example
    And I am getting a error below. I have gotten it to successfully to right through to the datastore at one point so i know it can work but after it then fails on the read. Has anyone successfully gotten his to work?

    Error: listen EADDRINUSE :::36887
    at Object.exports._errnoException (util.js:1020:11)
    at exports._exceptionWithHostPort (util.js:1043:20)
    at Agent.Server._listen2 (net.js:1258:14)
    at listen (net.js:1294:10)

  • What is your config.json? The EADDRINUSE exception usually occurs because you're trying to run nodebb while another instance is already running. Have you tried killing other node processes?

    I restarted and now when I
    from the command line installer "./nodebb install" I get this error

    26/10 12:20:12 [41716] - warn: NodeBB Setup Aborted.
    MongoError: Syntax error, incorrect syntax near '12'.
    at Function.MongoError.create (C:\dev\source\nodebb\10-26\NodeBB\node_modules\mongodb-core\lib\error.js:31:11)
    at queryCallback (C:\dev\source\nodebb\10-26\NodeBB\node_modules\mongodb-core\lib\cursor.js:197:34)

    at process._tickCallback (internal/process/next_tick.js:104:9)

    this is the function throwing the error


    • Creates a new MongoError object
    • @method
    • @param {object} options The error options
    • @return {MongoError} A MongoError instance
      MongoError.create = function(options) {
      var err = null;

    if(options instanceof Error) {
    err = new MongoError(options.message);
    err.stack = options.stack;
    } else if(typeof options == 'string') {
    err = new MongoError(options);
    } else {
    err = new MongoError(options.message || options.errmsg || options.$err || "n/a");
    // Other options
    for(var name in options) {
    err[name] = options[name];

    return err;

    this is the mongo connection string.. Its currently live if you want to give it a try..
    its on a free trial account that ill delete shortly.

    as you can see by the data explorer it installed on the instance at one point.

  • What's node -v?

    Also, ./nodebb setup is the command line installer.

  • @PitaJ

    node = 6.11.2
    npm = 5.5.1
