Description of problem: Replace ERROR: cannot connect to
"http://localhost:8888/ipa/json': [Errno 111] Connection refused" with "IPA is
not configured on this system"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ipa-server-4.4.0-7.el7.x86_64

How reproducible: Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure all the packages related to ipa-server is installed.
2. Ensure that ipa-server is not installed.
3. Now run the below commands.

Actual results:

[root@ipaserver ~]# ipa trust-find
ipa: ERROR: cannot connect to 'http://localhost:8888/ipa/json': [Errno 111]
Connection refused

[root@ipaserver ~]# ipa-advise

Forwarding 'schema' to json server 'http://localhost:8888/ipa/json'
cannot connect to 'http://localhost:8888/ipa/json': [Errno 111] Connection
refused
The ipa-advise command failed.

[root@ipaserver ~]# ipa-managed-entries status

[root@ipaserver ~]# ipa-compat-manage
An IPA server to update cannot be found. Has one been configured yet?
The error was: IPA realm not found in DNS, in the config file
(/etc/ipa/default.conf) or on the command line.

[root@ipaserver ~]# ipa-join
cannot open configuration file /etc/ipa/default.conf
Unable to determine IPA server from /etc/ipa/default.conf

Expected results: Basically all the commands, if possible should check if ipa
server is installed in the first place and if not then it should display
message like 'IPA is not configured on this system" rather than displaying
Network error or any other message.

This is for uniformity across all commands behaviour when ipa-server is not
installed.

Some of the commands which displayed proper message.
