    Description

      Description

      Similar to DOCS-8514 dropping a collection and then reusing the name to create another collection in a sharded environment can lead to stale cache SERVER-17397

      https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/method/db.collection.drop/ should warn that dropping and reusing a collection name requires complex cache flushing 

      Alternatively the docs could add that to avoid this problem, use remove({}) instead and manually drop any unneeded collections.
