      Description

      Specifying --bind_ip localhost with or without an additional ip address results in the server error:

      2018-01-10T18:17:10.809+0000 I STORAGE  [initandlisten] exception in initAndListen std::exception: listen: Address already in use, terminating
      2018-01-10T18:17:10.809+0000 I NETWORK  [initandlisten] shutdown: going to close listening sockets...
      

      As a result, it is not possible to start a server that binds to both localhost and an alternate IP address.
