How many time can I run the dry-run command

Just in case of a mistake, how many times per week I can run the following command:

sudo letsencrypt renew --dry-run

Does the dry-run command counts toward the number of times you can renew certifications:

--dry-run uses Let’s Encrypt’s staging environment. It has rate limits, but they are completely separate from the production rate limits, and much higher.

So it “counts” towards the number of times you can issue certificates in the staging environment, but you can issue thousands of certificates, and it has zero effect on your production rate limits.

What are the errors you receive and for what domain(s) are you attempting to issue certificates for?
