We have a Proxmox 5.1 cluster and were trying to follow the directions for LetsEncrypt SSL certificates for the nodes. We are following the directions at:

https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/HTTPS_Certificate_Configuration_(Version_4.x_and_newer)

These directions worked great for the first node in the cluster. However, when I try to get certificates for any of the other nodes at step 5 when I attempt to issue the certificate I get:

[Thu Dec 7 12:43:49 CST 2017] Standalone mode.
[Thu Dec 7 12:43:49 CST 2017] Registering account
[Thu Dec 7 12:43:49 CST 2017] Already registered
[Thu Dec 7 12:43:49 CST 2017] Update account error.
[Thu Dec 7 12:43:49 CST 2017] Please check log file for more details: /root/.acme.sh/acme.sh.log
Any suggestions how to get certificates issued for the remaining nodes in the cluster?

Here is a slightly scrubbed log but the host / email address are correct and DNS resolvable forward / reverse:

Yep, that was the problem. I had installed using the zip file and not git. Changed to git and went through just as documented. Thanks for catching this!
