Comment 1 Jaspreet Kaur 2017-02-20 07:29:03 UTC
Also, the location mentioned in docs is incorrect :

 etcdctl -C https://${ETCD_CA_HOST}:2379 \
  --ca-file=/etc/etcd/ca.crt     \
  --cert-file=/etc/etcd/peer.crt     \
  --key-file=/etc/etcd/peer.key member add ${NEW_ETCD} https://${NEW_ETCD_IP}:2380

As Jan is fine with giving this BZ back to the docs team, let's mark it as duplicate of #1419670. Comment 1 is copied to #1419670. So nothing left here.
