Connect mongorestore to managed mongo database

I have setup a managed mongodb database in DO. I am able to successfully connect with compass but i need to use mongorestore to upload my backup. Here is the command and the error i am receiving. Kindly help!

mongorestore --uri=“mongodb+srv://doadmin:XXX@prod-cogito-mongo-b1299a8a.mongo.ondigitalocean.com/cogito_prod?authSource=admin&replicaSet=prod-cogito-mongo” --ssl --sslCAFile /home/pratik/Downloads/mongo-cert/ca-certificate.crt -d=cogito_prod --dryRun -v /home/pratik/db-backup/mongo/test

2021-10-06T10:49:35.390+0530 error connecting to host: could not connect to server: connection() error occured during connection handshake: dial tcp: i/o timeout

We are getting only the root certificate CRT from DO it seems there is another option --sslPEMKeyFile, do i need to use that as well if then how to get this pem file from the root cert.

Hi @cradmn2021,

You can use the below mongodump and mongorestore command to back and restore to MongoDB managed database cluster.

mongodump --uri "mongodb+srv://<your username>:<your password>@db-mongodb-xxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxxx.mongo.ondigitalocean.com/<dbname>?authSource=admin&replicaSet=db-mongodb-xxx-xxxxxx&tls=true&tlsCAFile=ca-certificate.crt"

mongorestore --uri "mongodb+srv://<your username>:<your password>@db-mongodb-xxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxxx.mongo.ondigitalocean.com/<dbname>?authSource=admin&replicaSet=db-mongodb-xxx-xxxxxx&tls=true&tlsCAFile=ca-certificate.crt" dump/<dbname>

Feel free to check MongoDB managed database import article : https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/databases/mongodb/how-to/import-collections/

Also, make sure to add local machine/droplet IP from where you are going to execute this command to MongoDB managed database trusted source.

I hope this helps!
