Duplicate Certificate Limit with K8s and cert-manager

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. crt.sh | example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: ctx.cadienttalent.com

I ran this command:

It produced this output: E0126 05:38:37.217577 1 sync.go:264] cert-manager/controller/orders "msg"="failed to create Order resource due to bad request, marking Order as failed" "error"="429 urn:ietf:params:acme:error:rateLimited: Error creating new order :: too many certificates (5) already issued for this exact set of domains in the last 168 hours: texting.ctx.cadienttalent.com, retry after 2023-01-26T18:50:35Z:

My web server is (include version): nginx

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): k8s

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): yes

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):

how to get rid of this?

You wait.

In the meantime, you use one of the certificates its referring to, the "previously issued" ones.


Testing and debugging are best done using the Staging Environment as the Rate Limits are much higher. Rate Limits are per week (rolling).

And to assist with debugging there is a great place to start is Let's Debug.

Which Challenge Types - Let's Encrypt are you using?
