DNS method certificate completion


I have just completed update-ACMEcertificate and received a serial number

Used DNS method to submit identifier. Need assistance in order to complete this as new certificate has not taken effect as yet:

@kyletenacit, I’m not familiar with the Windows side so I don’t know exactly what to suggest that you do, but I want to point out that you might have a conceptual confusion about what will happen. Although we talk about “renewing” a certificate in a way that might make it sound like the certificate authority can extend the validity of an old certificate, at a technical level this is always implemented by issuing a new certificate. The certificate is really a digital document that needs to be installed and presented to users by your web site.

So, when a certificate is “renewed”, you should receive a new certificate which is intended to be used to replace the old one. It doesn’t “take effect” at some point, but instead has to be installed on your server somehow in place of the old one.

The certificate you mention, https://crt.sh/?q=D4CFAC3B2980549102A50A18D278066AE34F9513, already exists and is already valid; there is nothing else that you need to wait for. It just needs to be installed somehow on your server in place of the old one.
