Hi! Every time I provision new load balancers, if I provision more than 5, I get a rate limit error. I've tried keeping instances around longer, but sometimes things happen and I need more. (Also, every single time I try to get certs issued when I'm under load, the Let's Encrypt API is slow for me!) Right now every time I have this problem, I just leave the extra load balancers offline until a week later when their automatic renewal task fixes their cert, and then I add them into the mix at our CDN.
I wonder if I should get an override, or bite the bullet and add a key distribution mechanism?
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. crt.sh | example.com), 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:
/certbot-auto certonly -d acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org \ -d acme-v02-1.api.letsencrypt.org \ -d acme-v02-2.api.letsencrypt.org \ -d acme-v02-3.api.letsencrypt.org \ -d acme-v02-4.api.letsencrypt.org \ -d acme-v02-5.api.letsencrypt.org \ -d incident.letsencrypt.org
It produced this output:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains: acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org acme-v02-1.api.letsencrypt.org acme-v02-2.api.letsencrypt.org acme-v02-3.api.letsencrypt.org acme-v02-4.api.letsencrypt.org acme-v02-5.api.letsencrypt.org incident.letsencrypt.org : see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/
