How to install etcdctl in a cluster bootstrapped with kubeadm?

I’ve bootstrapped a cluster with kubeadm in GCP, but I’m being unable to run “ETCDCTL_API=3 etcdctl” commands. Came across this:, but still unable to run any etcdctl commands. Some help please. Thanks!

You can follow steps from below link:

Hi player001,

Thanks for your reply :slight_smile:

This seems to be the method to install etcd as a service, while kubeadm deploys etcd as a pod in the kube-system.

I would be primarily interested in understanding how to access the etcd pod in kube-system.
