    Description

      1. Start two replica set servers that have not been initiated yet
      server1> ./mongod --replSet yo/<host>:27018
      server2> ./mongod --dbpath /data/db2 --port 27018 --replSet yo/<host>:27017

      2. Start mongo shell connecting to one of them
      client> ./mongo <host>/test

      3. Initiate replica set using default config
      client> rs.initiate()
      {
      "info2" : "no configuration explicitly specified – making one",
      "assertion" : "can't find self in the replset config",
      "assertionCode" : 13279,
      "errmsg" : "db assertion failure",
      "ok" : 0
      }

      In server1 log below, notice that generated configuration has _id 0 for both hosts. That is the problem. It works when you supply the config explicitly with unique host _ids.
