Let's Encrypt not Renewing due to rate-limit

CentOS Linux 7.9.2009
Virtualmin version 6.15

When renewal fails due to backend rate-limit.
Must I pause virtualmin renewal requests to exit 5 day rate-limit imposed by Let’s Encrypt backend?
If yes how do I pause?

Let’s Encrypt rate limit expires as documented.
Nothing needs to be done in Virtualmin.
