Hi @roosit,

You’ll need to provide your domain so we can continue troubleshooting.

@Phil This looks like it was a 500 error in the staging environment talking to one of the remote VA instances. A starting point might be looking at the PerformValidation RPC success rates during the timespan mentioned.

@roosit I recommend trying again. I believe you encountered a transient error that probably matches to a load spike in our environment and is out of your control.
