Hi @nelmzee, and welcome to the LE community forum :slight_smile:

This is not a VEEAM forum.
So, you may not get the most accurate / most specific help for that product here.

That said, there are ACME clients for most operating systems and we can help you with that part of the puzzle.
[as for converting a certificate into a .pfx file, there are many ways to do that - some are also "built into" the ACME clients themselves]

So, let us help you better by answering these basic questions:

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., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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

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

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


Which platform does VEEAM run on? Is the server it's running on visible on the public internet?

Getting a cert starts with proving you control the domain using either an http challenge or dns challenge. These are handled by your ACME client software (of which there are many available but the most suitable will vary depending on your choice of OS, some natively produce PFX, some don't). Once you prove you control the domain you can get a cert issued, you then deploy that to whatever service as per that services own instructions. With short lived certificate you generally want to automate all this, which is what ACME clients are usually designed to do/help with.
