Has anything improved with Certbot to make it any easier to handle backup servers yet?
I have 4 servers (2 main, 2 set up for failover backup), plus 2 other servers.
phineas.my-domain.com (my-domain.com main)
ferb.my-domain.com (my-domain.com backup)
perry.my-domain.com (eu.my-domain.com main)
doofenshmirtz.my-domain.com (eu.my-domain.com backup)
candace.my-domain.com (utility server with a few other domains)
carl.my-domain.com (email server)
I can get Certbot to work fine on the main servers, but not the backup servers because the domains don’t point to the backup servers unless there is a failover on the main servers (automatic through DNS Made Easy).
Last time I asked about this, I was told the only way was to copy the certificates over from the main to the backup servers every 90 days. So either I have to manually do this every 90 days, or set up rsync and a cron job to do this (plus some file management because I don’t want rsync to have direct access to root folders).
Are there any other easier options now?
I wish there was something I could do to let Certbot know these are backup servers so I don’t have to jump through these extra hoops to try and get this to work on the backup servers, and just let Certbot take care of things.
