Description of problem:
A recent change in 4.5 introduced a bug that disallows backups taken on one master to be restored on other masters.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take a cluster-backup using cluster-backup.sh on one master.
2. Copy the backup on to another master.
3. Attempt to restore the database on the other master using procedure documented.
The etcds fail to come up on all masters.
All etcds successfully start on all masters and the cluster recovers.

As a workaround, a backup should be restored on the same master it is taken from.
To determine the master where the backup is taken from, one may run the following command against the backup directory:
sudo tar xvzf <backup>/static_kuberesources_*.tar.gz *restore-etcd-pod/pod.yaml --to-stdout 2>&1 | grep 'ETCD_NAME='
