Updating the certificate for Loadbalancer only working for one Loadbalancer?


I have a problem with updating the certificate of a load balancer.

I’m using 2 loadbalancers (1 for staging, 1 for production).

The following steps were taken: I added the new certificate using the webpage under “Certificates for Load Balancers and Spaces”.

I then changed the certificate of the load balancers under “Forwardings rules” to the new certificate for both staging and production.

The loadbalancer for staging is using the new certificate. Success!

The one for production is still using the old certificate.

I double checked and the sha1 of production is still the old certificate.

Is there something I’m missing?

Hi there,

Did you also update your port 443 forwarding rule with the new SSL certificate as described here?
