My infrastructure has been running for one and a half year by now.
I’m using version 1.3.0 of OpenBalena.
I’m using a Let’s Encrypt certificate generated and managed by OpenBalena.
As I understand, that certificate is created for 90 days and automatically refreshed when needed.
It seems that has worked for 1,5 years because I never had any errors related to expired certificate.
However today I realized that one of my Raspberry Pi had an error because it is blipping it’s LED, indicating it doesn’t have access to the Balena instance.
When I tried to connect to the Balena CLI to investigate is when I realized my certificate was expired.
CERT_HAS_EXPIRED: request to https://api.<mydomaine>/login_ failed, reason: certificate has expired
If I go to the api from my web browser, same story. The certificate was generated 3 months ago, and has now been expired for 3 days.

I connected to my Balena Instance (running on DigitalOcean with no issues since october 2019), and tried restarting the cert-provider container with:
./scripts/compose restart cert-provider
That didn’t change anything. I also looked at the logs of that container, but there is nothing suspicious. Extract since I restarted (I first restarted the server, then a bit later manually restarted only the cert-provider)
For now my infrastructure “works” because the actual work takes place outside the Balena Instance, so I’m not in a critical situation. However, I cannot access my devices from Balena, and cannot login to the Balena CLI because of this.
I would appreciate your help in forcing the the Let’s Encrypt certificate to update.
Thanks in advance
