kube-proxy on master nodes? #51

I'm trying to install the metrics server into my cluster. It requires you to add an APIService that registers itself as an API extension in the API server. However, my masters needs to be able to access this using a Service clusterIP, which it currently cannot, so the APIService fails.

Reading around a bit:

It looks like people install kube-proxy on the masters to achieve this, but it feels a bit weird.

Have you got any idea on how to do this best with Kubernetes The Right Way? There is also a discussion here where they recommend adding an additional API server as a pod inside the cluster, but I'm not quite sure...

EDIT: Running kube-proxy on masters feels really odd. It's not something that I'd want to do.

I feel that I need to do some research and testing to understand this completely. But I agree that running kube-proxy on the apiserver feels strange. Feels that the implementation of metrics-server could be different.
