Bug Description

neutron.conf allows system-wide flag for creating distributed router.

Below description is from neutron.conf
# System-wide flag to determine the type of router that tenants can create.
# Only admin can override. (boolean value)
#router_distributed = false

But admin is allowed to override this flag while creating the router, for example, with neutron client
neutron router-create --distributed=False test1

But this overriding is not possible with openstack client as it won't allow --distributed=False.
So when "router_distributed=True" is set in neutron.conf, admin can't override with --distributed flag(can't create non-distributed router)
1) openstack router create --distributed test1

It is still a bug. Openstack client has the provision to change router to "distributed" or "centralized" after creation using "set" command, but during creation admin can't override default behavior.

I am having the same issue for creating a non-ha router, just doing "router create r1" creates a router with ha:true, setting the --ha option doesn't change that, would need a --no-ha option for "router create" as well.

    Allow override of distributed router flag

    When router_distributed=True is set in neutron.conf,
    user can't override this and create a centralized router
    through openstack client. Openstack client allows modifying
    routers from distributed to centralized after creation but
    not supporting centralized flag during creation. We allow
    centralized and distributed flags during router creation
    with this change.
