Docs for SERVER-29825: Do not allow rename from unreplicated to replicated DB or vice-versa

      Description

      Description:

      Probably worth making a quick note of this restriction

      Engineering Ticket Description:

      We currently allow renameCollection from the "local" database to a replicated database. This doesn't make a lot of sense; the local collections may be different on each replica, so doing so will result in an inconsistent set.

      We also allow renameCollection from a replicated DB to an unreplicated one; this usually works but will cause problems if the local collection exists and dropExisting isn't specified.

      Scope of changes

      • Will add to renameCollection command behavior (but without version) (shell method cannot rename to a different database - so no change there)
