1. Stop the mongod service on all the 5 nodes
2. Start 1 node without any replica set name in the config file and drop local DB and stop the service
3. Change the config file back with the new replica set name in all the 5 nodes
4. Start all the 5 servers with the new config file
5. rs.initiate() node 1 and rs.add all rest 4 nodes
