      db version v4.2.0
      git version: a4b751dcf51dd249c5865812b390cfd1c0129c30

      C:\Users\joe>mongod --fork
      Error parsing command line: unrecognised option '--fork'

      Should just ignore this option on windows for script compatibility.

       

      Scope of changes

      • Update the --fork documentation to note that the option is not supported in Windows.
      • Can borrow language from --syslog

      Backport to 3.2
