I started getting a few error messages this morning since my backups were failing. After checking, I realized that the fingerprint changed on my pbs servers.
That probably happened because the PBS server certificates were updated with the ACME process.

1) Is it possible anyhow that the fingerprint update beeing pushed automatically to the datacenter storage connector when that occurs ?
2) Is it possible to get an email alert when the fingerprint is changed ?

Thanks :)

In that case I would recommend to just remove the fingerprint form the storage config

if the certificate is signed by (a chain leading to) a certificate in your system's trust store (Let's Encrypt is in the truststore for most systems and definitely by default for Debian and Proxmox) it is not necessary to compare the fingerprints

I hope this helps!
