I’m running cert-manager on our Kubernetes cluster which requests for a LE cert every time a new feature branch is created.
Unfortunately it appears that cert-manager keeps re-requesting and it hit some kind of IP block.
Now I see the following error when logs cert-manager.
E0723 11:37:24.651125 1 controller.go:147] clusterissuers controller: Re-queuing item “letsencrypt” due to error processing: 403 urn:ietf:params:acme:error:rateLimited: Your IP, 82.x, has been blocked due to ridiculously excessive traffic. Once this is corrected you may request this be reviewed on our forum https://community.letsencrypt.org
In some projects, the request for certificates was incorrectly configured, and because of this, huge traffic was generated.
I fixed it, and would like my IP to be unblocked.
Not very comfortable sharing the actual ip here.
In a similar topic, I found a mail on which I can send an IP, So I sent a request to it
