I moved your post to the Help section. You would have been shown the form below. Please answer as much as you can. The more you tell us the better we can advise.

I have a feeling you may not be using the best ACME Client for an IIS Server. So please at least explain which you are using

===================

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:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know):

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):

There is no one webroot. It is the folder that you have configured in the server for that site, regardless of what webserver you are using. It is the same folder as you have placed your site's default page.

Am I missing something ... ?

My domain is: web.eulachtal.***

My web server is (include version): IIS on Windows Server 2022 (all patches installed)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Windows Server 2022 (all patches installed)

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: None, just a internal webserver

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): it's a windows certbot version (cli version) . it does not show version, even when i run certbot --help

Certbot dropped support for Windows this past February.

You should not use it for new installs. Several alternatives are suggested in thread below. But, I recommend Certify the Web.

Certbot never did IIS on Windows very well anyway.

You'd better use windows specific client like win-acme or cerifiy the web

Ok, thank you. But are this also free certificates like with lets encrypt ?
That's mainly the reason why I chose it...

Yes. Let's Encrypt is a Certificate Authority that uses the ACME protocol.

LE runs the ACME Server. You can choose any of the ACME Clients to get a cert.

LE does not charge for certs
