      Description

      Problem:
      Several users are reporting the same issue after upgrade an existing MongoDB install from 1.6.x to 1.6.5

      The start script is failing with "start: Unknown job: mongodb"

      Workaround:

      In "/etc/init/mongodb.conf" comment out, or remove, the "limit nofile 20000" line.

          I had to purge and reinstall mongo before this workaround would work.

          After the install, remove the "limit nofile 20000" line from "/etc/init/mongodb.conf"

          I think this is fixed in git head. Pushing new packages now. See SERVER-2200.
