This works fine. I just think that it may be useful to print some info like
'Schema check failed, you can use --skip-schema-check to....' in case when the
following lines thrown an exception:

+    connection = ldap2.IPASimpleLDAPObject(ca_ldap_url)
+    connection.start_tls_s()
+    connection.simple_bind_s(DN(('cn', 'Directory Manager')),
+                             config.dirman_password)

This is an output I received when dirsrv@PKI-IPA on my IPA 2.2 master was down,
the error was not very descriptive:

# ipa-ca-install replica-info-vm-104.idm.lab.bos.redhat.com.gpg
Directory Manager (existing master) password:
Connection from master to replica is OK.

Connection check OK

Your system may be partly configured.
Run /usr/sbin/ipa-server-install --uninstall to clean up.

Can't contact LDAP server

Something like:

   connection stuff...
except Exception:
   print the info
