The server could not resolve a domain name


#1

Hello,

i get the following error message if i try to get an certificate.

Failed authorization procedure. www.leinwand-bilder.com (http-01): unknownHost :: The server could not resolve a domain name :: No IPv4 addresses found for www.leinwand-bilder.com

The DNS resolution is still ok, but why letsencrypt could not resolve this dns name?

Best regards
Dirk

Hello,

today i receive the same error. How can i contact the sysadmins from Let’s Encrypt?

The DNS A record is correct and works. The problem is by Let’s Encrypt.

Best regards

May be there is a problem with captital letters in an A record?

www.LEINWAND-BILDER.COM. 3600 IN A 82.211.34.132

Hello,

all responsible DNS Server answer with the correct A record.

Why i still get the error: “Failed authorization procedure. www.leinwand-bilder.com (http-01): unknownHost :: The server could not resolve a domain name :: No IPv4 addresses found for www.leinwand-bilder.com

Why i don’t receive an answer? The certificate is only 90 days signed and if there are problems with dns in the future nobody can help? Hmm, so i can not use Let’s Encrypt certificates, because i need my site 24/7 hours with ssl support.

Thanks for reporting, this looks like a bug in Boulder. I’ve filed an issue: https://github.com/letsencrypt/boulder/issues/1112

reminds is there a known list of dns servers that LE checks ?


Error: serverInternal :: Error creating new authz

I’m afraid not, sorry.

no worries, it would be nice to have though as my LE integration is currently checking against only 8.8.8.8 to see if a scripted nginx vhost domain name has a valid A record and that email address for LE account rego has MX record before pre-populating the custom cli.ini config file used for webroot authentication.

Just in the off chance 8.8.8.8 or one of your dns servers you check against doesn’t agree with each other.
