I am running into problems with issuing an ssl certificate for a domain that is pointing to my server’s IP. There are many domains with a CNAME that point to our domain and for none of them this issue has occurred in the past, it’s only this one particular domain where I get
DNS problem: SERVFAIL looking up A for backoffice.cempa.pt
I tried running
dig backoffice.cempa.pt as well as the same command for one of our other, working, domains. They both looked alright to me:
;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 20050 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 2, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0 ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;backoffice.cempa.pt.

Not quite sure how to continue looking for the solution, so any help is appreciated. I realize there are already a few other ppl asking similar questions, but none of the answers I read really helped me figuring out the problem.
Thanks in advance!
