You need to show us the logs so we can analyze it better

Are you following the documentation from this link?

If so, make sure everything else is running first - Telemetry should be just about the last thing you install. Mongodb logs to files under /var/log/mongodb, so - as per the comment above - take a look in there to see why Mongo's not starting properly. :)

Hi Guys,

Its my mistake.. I didn't do the pre-requisites from the documentation, that's why it didn't start. All is good now.

Cheers, JK
