Description Chris Egeland 2021-11-18 14:10:30 UTC
Description of problem: When installing certbot, certbot-renew.timer is not made active, despite being included in 90-defaults.preset. Without this timer enabled, certbot will not automatically run to renew certificates, causing an unexpected expiration. Per https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1940211, this timer should be enabled by default when present.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): certbot-1.20.0-1.fc35

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 35
2. Ensure certbot-renew.timer is present in /usr/lib/systemd/system-preset/90-default.preset (grep certbot /usr/lib/systemd/system-preset/90-default.preset)
3. Install certbot (dnf install -y -q certbot)
4. Search for certbot-renew.timer in systemd timers (systemctl list-timers --all | grep certbot)

Actual results: certbot-renew.timer is not listed as an active timer

Expected results: certbot-renew.timer should be listed as an active timer

Additional info:

[root@fedora ~]# grep certbot /usr/lib/systemd/system-preset/90-default.preset 
enable certbot-renew.timer
[root@fedora ~]# dnf install -y -q certbot

Comment 1 Felix Schwarz 2021-11-19 07:10:17 UTC
Yes, I noticed that shortly after releasing 1.20 and fixed this in git: https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/certbot/c/92f4517312b68f1dc7397307b8899ef7d4be97e6?branch=rawhide

The change will go live once I get to packaging 1.21 (bug 2020069). That version requires a bit of extra time as I need to update Certbot's signing key and 1.21 itself does not bring any significant changes.
