SMA 500v - - Lets Encrypt fails, Appliance struggles

BWCBWC Cybersecurity Overlord ✭✭✭

Is there any known issue that requesting a Lets Encrypt Certificate on SMA 500v runing fails and after that the appliance is acting weird? I'am not able to get a TSR because the wait indicator is circling for ever. Even trying to log into the SMA again is failing with endless waiting.

The login fails after 3 minutes, a reboot solves the issue.

That's problematic because all of my SMAs are updated to, even those using LE certs with upcoming certificate renewals.

It's related to GeoIP, if I disable GeoIP blocking the cert gets issued. Now I have to figure out which Countries I need to allow, I guess it's US at least, which was on my block list.

    Enabling United States and Sweden did the trick, not sure if Singapore needs to be added as well, but it works without it.

    Needless to say that's nothing I really want, because allowing access from Countries we don't expect connections from is not helpful.
