i understand that manual mode is not considered ready for prime time yet (https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt/issues/1087 etc.) but from the little mentions of this in past threads/issues and by looking at the source code i’m still not able to understand how to run the manual auth process. none of my attempts seem to trigger manual mode:
$ ~/.local/share/letsencrypt/bin/letsencrypt --manual -d domain.example.tld auth Failed authorization procedure. domain.example.tld (dvsni): unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: Correct zName not found for TLS SNI challenge
as a beta tester i am happy to deal with keys/csrs/certs manually (in my test environment i cannot use automatic auth due to security policies) but would find it useful to at least make sure i am following the correct procedure to trigger manual auth, so that i can test this and report any issues: is the current manual procedure documented anywhere, as all the examples i could find seem to be outdated?
