Description of problem:
Currently with changes to fix https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1898954 needed API server to be available for cluster backup to be taken.
Sometimes, it is desirable to force a backup even when the API server is not available to check the health of the cluster. For example, the disruptive tests rely on taking a backup with two masters down.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Bring two masters down.
2. Attempt to take a backup using cluster-backup.sh script.
backup fails with unreachable API server (error may report etcdserver timeout)
With --force option, which is being added, the backup should be successful even when API server is not reachable.
