we’ve recently renewed 32 certificates for a subdomains of livebox.sk without any problems. The problem we have now is that sounds like these were not counted as renewals and we are hitting the rate limits for this particular domain. each and every request for issuing a new cert for subdomain fails with below error. We are using the official certbot-auto script and never had any issues with other domains. All renewed via bultin http-01 challnege with custom pre&post hooks that make sure port 80 is usable for the challenge.
certbot-auto renew -q --no-self-upgrade # (currently running 0.11.1)
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new cert :: too many certificates already issued for: livebox.sk
