    Description

      There is currently a documentation page that outlines how to restore a sharded environment onto the same cluster:

      http://docs.mongodb.org/v2.4/tutorial/restore-sharded-cluster/

      There is some small mention made there of changing hostnames.

      However, the procedure as a whole is not entirely suitable for restoring a complete sharded cluster backup (including config servers) onto a fresh sharded environment.

      There are also several caveats - such as the new mongos will at first try to reach the old shard servers - that need to be addressed as well.
