Any ideas on this ?

Code:
ERROR “domain” is unmanaged. Verify registration and authoritative nameserver configuration for this domain or any of its parent domains to correct this problem.
Domain is resolving fine etc?

Hey there! Usually this issue happens when your local server can't retrieve information from the nameservers being used for the domain. You can get a full list of the nameservers for the domain with this command:

Code:
dig +short NS domain.com
You can try manually pulling your DNS records from those nameservers with "dig domain.com @name.server.com" to see if you can reach each of those.

You can also run this command to get information on the domain the same way AutoSSL does:

Code:
/scripts/cpdig cpanel.net A --verbose
as that may give you additional details.

I have this same issue. Dig returns the nameservers for the domain and the IP of those nameservers as well as the website just fine. The issue is the way cpanel does the check with

Code:
/scripts/cpdig cpanel.net A --verbose
This is what some of the response looks like:

Both my nameservers are ec2s on AWS running cPanel DNSonly in a dns cluster.

Everything else seems to work fine except cpanel. Any thoughts?

Mine was simply that the domain registration took longer than usual to propagate - the next day it worked.

However we still see huge quantities of libunbound errors, all relating to IPv6 lookups, it seems not to like running on a server without IPv6 enabled.

These issues mentioned seem specific to the IPv6 configuration on the system. Can you work through the guide here to see if that helps you find any issues?

That sounds like the issue then. You'd want to speak with your host to see why those outbound requests aren't working well and that should take care of the issue.
This isn't an ipv6 issue. my ipv6 was enabled but not configured to work. I turned it off on my system. The issue still persists,

Seems like a cpanel issue, not the system. cpdig still tries to resolve ipv6 addresses. ipv6 is disabled on my system and all dns to the server is ipv4.

Is ipv6 required to use autossl or whm/cpanel in general?

My other servers are all configured the same way, ipv6 is enabled on the system but not configured. None of them have these issues with not being able to issue autossl certs.

The IPv6 connection isn't necessarily required, but it seems to be what the nameservers in question responded with in your output:

Code:
[1611786316] libunbound[7537:0] info: resolving ns2.nameserver.com. AAAA IN
[1611786316] libunbound[7537:0] info: resolving ns1.nameserver.com. AAAA IN

Can you let me know what happens when you run the following command on your system?

Code:
dig +trace A google.com

Same AutoSSL failure problem: Domain "is unmanaged. Verify this domain’s registration and authoritative nameserver configuration to correct this problem." Here's what I got from
dig +trace A google.com
I have NO IPV6 addresses assigned. (This all started after V92. This is the first domain I've tried to set up since then. It's fully propagated as of yesterday, but today AutoSSL fails.

Digging an old domain yields the two private nameservers I've used for years:

Digging the new domain shows same results.

Yes, there's quite a bit out of the ordinary; especially when I run the same command against old domain I mentioned earlier (not included, below). I don't recognize most of these IP addresses.

The ID is # 94182262
You all did some investigating and concluded that the data center or host service provider has a bad setup. Possibly an incorrect network firewall setting. We are still waiting for Hostgator to resolve this issue. (they sometimes take forever to deal with tickets. This one has been open 37 hours and it hasn't been assigned to a tech.)
