Hi @dcvractual,

Can you let me know what is your actual setup? Floating IPs let you redirect network traffic between any of your Droplets within the same datacenter. Assigning a floating IP to a Droplet doesn’t replace or change its original public IP address.

You can use floating IPs to create server infrastructures without single points of failure, but a floating IP alone does not automatically provide high availability. For a setup to be highly available, you need to implement a failover mechanism to automate the process of detecting failures of the active server and reassigning the floating IP to a passive server.

Basically, what think it’s doing is that it’s not reaching the server with your let’s encrypt installed. What I’ll recommend is to review your configuration see where it’s reaching and install SSL there as well.
