Hi @jkel

there are a lot of certificates:;include_subdomains:true;;issuer_uid:4428624498008853827&lu=cert_search_cert

Check page 2. Same there:

Looks like you have created a lot of certificates last Monday.

Why isn't it possible to use one of these.

Today later or tomorrow it should work.

It should work right now - the window isn't even close, there's only a single certificate for the exact name within the 7 day window.

Something looks broken at the CA. see my post below

Rate Limit Current Status Domain
50 Certificates per Registered Domain per week OK (2 / 50 this week.)

Hi Juergen
I wasnt aware about the rate limit last monday and about the stagging env, So when trying to deploy to kubernetes, I did it several times. Now my deployment is ok and I want to use the prod env.
I cant use those generated because I didnt have them, when redeploying to kube, the container is trashed and the certificate too, I am now enhancing my deployment using pv
So I f I try tomorrow it should be ok, right ?
Thanks for helping

Ah, nothing is wrong.

You tried pretty much as your last 3 certificates were sliding out of the window. You needed to wait a few more minutes.

Try right now, you will succeed.

This is always bad.

If you use container, you should always save the certificates and account keys outside the container.

So you can use the certificate 60 - 80 days.

yes I am using persitant volumes now
