In AWS EKS, how to install and access etcd, kube-apiserver, and other things?


I am learning AWS EKS now and I want to know how to access etcd, kube-apiserver and other control plane components?

My question: I want to do something like the above example in AWS EKS, but I cannot find kube-apiserver


AWS EKS is a managed kubernetes offering. Kubernetes control plane components such as API Server, ETCD are installed, managed and upgraded by AWS. Hence you can neither see these components nor can exec into these components.

In AWS EKS you can only play with the worker nodes
