Managed Let's Encrypt certificate is always uses "root" domain name as CN, even thou I've selected subdomain(s)
I’ve noticed that Let’s Encrypt-certificates managed by Digital Ocean (created in the Security-tab of the Control Panel) will always be issued with the root domain name as CN, even thou I want then issues only for certain subdomains (these seem to be added as SAN’s). This is a problem because at some point (I assume when I set the certificate to be used in a kubernetes loadbalancer service) DNS records are created for all domains covered by the certificate, including the root which is already pointing at another location.
Is there a way to make it use only the subdomain, or at least prevent it from creating DNS entries if one already exists for the same name?
