In your first example, you authenticated against a DB named pat, in your second example you authenticated against a DB named patsdb.  If you change patsdb to pay on your second example, it should work.

Hi,


I have mongoldb 3.2.5 set up on Ubuntu 14.04. I have authentication turned on.


I can connect as admin user from the command line.


mongo admin -u admin -p password


I can also just connect to mongo and use db.auth to become admin like..


mongo


use admin

switched to db admin

db.auth("admin", "password")

1


I have created another user(pat) that I can authenticate as using the db.auth command when
connected to mongod


use pat
switched to db pat
db.auth("pat", "password")
1





 


but I can't connect from the command line like this..


mongo patsdb -u pat -p password



I get 
MongoDB shell version: 3.2.5
connecting to: pat

In the mongod.log file I get

Does anyone know what's going on?


Thanks.


Pat.
