Replica set nodes running with --nojournal should have writeConcernMajorityJournalDefault set to false.

    • true

    Description

      If a replica set is running without journaling, the writeConcernMajorityJournalDefault option in the replica set config should be set to false.

      If this isn't done there will be multiple issues, including:

      • w:majority writes will never complete
      • two-phase collection drops will never actually drop the underlying WT tables.

      This update should also be backported to v3.4 and v3.2.
