Cause: The backup script was invoked with all ETCD endpoints. Consequence: This was overlooked in etcd 3.3.x versions, but in etcd 3.4.x, this invocation results in failure. Fix: Set the ETCDCTL_ENDPOINTS to a single member. Result: backups are successfully taken.

Description Suresh Kolichala 2020-04-10 14:05:27 UTC
Description of problem:
By default, etcdctl is invoked with ETCDCTL_ENDPOINTS set to all etcd members. However, when invoking snapshot backup, it should be invoked with a single endpoint. This is strictly enforced in the new etcd versions of 3.4.x.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to one of the master hosts
2. Attempt to take a backup by invoking cluster-backup.sh

Actual results:
In 4.5, where etcd is bumped to use 3.4.7, it fails with an error:
Error: snapshot must be requested to one selected node, not multiple []

Expected results:
snapshot db and kube resources are successfully saved to backup directory specified.
