On Windows 2012R2 I have Apache 2.4.54 and mod_md (v2.4.17) config entry:

MDNotifyCmd d:/apache_files/md_restart.cmd

In log it looks like it renewed a cert ok, then:

(OS 6)The handle is invalid. : AH02965: Child: Unable to retrieve my generation from the parent\r\n
AH10059: The Managed Domain mydomain.com has been setup and changes will be activated on next (graceful) server restart.

contents of restart:
rem cd \apache_files
rem net stop "Apache24-2"
rem \jobs\unix\sleep 5
rem net start "Apache24-2"
cd D:\apache24-2\bin
httpd -k restart
echo %1 %2 domain renewed and Apache24-2 restarted > email.txt
D:\jobs\blat email.txt -t sme@home.com -s %computername%-md_restart.cmd -server oursmtp.com -f webalert@home.com -noh
exit 0

It's only when I restart the service does the new cert become active...

The batch seems to work as I get the email.

I have in httpd.conf :

MDNotifyCmd D:/servers/apache/bin/MDNotifyCmd.bat

And in /bin MDNotifyCmd.bat :

Net stop Apache
ping -n 10 -w 1000 > nul
Net start Apache
