Using ansible to provision local certificates using letsencrypt

Read in 2 minutes ·

Over the weekend, I ran into a bit of a non-standard use case for LetsEncrypt(LE). Basically I have some vmware esxi and other boxes that aren’t capable of running letsencrypt certbotm but I wanted to give them valid certificates. Certbot is awesome and definitely the easiest way to get LE up and running for 99% of the folks out there. However, the most common way certbot validates domains/hostnames is by using the http validation and using its own directory.
