I want to put a lets encrypt cert on an appliance. Specifically a BigIP VS that performs SSL offload for me.
Now, I COULD put a VS in place and LB all the traffic to an internal host and run certbot --standalone on there… But that means taking it offline, changing the config, changing it back etc.
Is there any way to get a cert from letsencrypt WITHOUT the chick & egg problem (i.e. I have an appliance. It has a self-signed cert on it, it’d work if it were a lets encrypt cert, but it won’t until I have one. And I can’t get one until it does work)
