Vault initial token?

I haven’t touched to Vault for a while and today when I attempt to login Vault by using Initial Root Token, I get the following error:

/ $ vault login
Token (will be hidden): 
Error authenticating: error looking up token: Get "": 
x509: certificate has expired or is not yet valid: current time 2022-10-09T22:49:58Z is after 2022-08-17T19:34:22Z
/ $ vault token create
Error creating token: Post "": x509: certificate has expired or is not yet valid: current time 2022-10-09T22:51:15Z is after 2022-08-17T19:34:22Z
/ $ 

Could you please advise how can I produce a new initial token?

Thanks & Regards

As the error says your TLS certificate has expired.

You will need to get a replacement certificate issued and then update the files/restart Vault.

thanks for your answer @stuart-c but unfortunately not so simple.

The cert was renewed by cert-manager automaticialy but vault is not aware of the cert was renewed. I delete vault pods, k8s re-creates the pods, the secret/cert is read by Vault and it works.

Is there any way to fix that problem?

Thanks & Regards

You would need to look at the cert-manager configuration to see if it can restart pods when a certificate gets renewed. I’m sure there are some other tools which could be used to detect such changes and restart the pods too.

how can cert-manager know the certificate is being used Vault or something else?

Can you please advise an sample configuration?

Thx & Regards
