The client configuration is separate from the administrative tools.

With the admin tools yes you need to specify --server to avoid the SRV
lookup. I don't see a way in the code around that (other than to not
have SRV records).

If you pass --server and --force to ipa-client-install it will force it
to not use DNS discovery.

In the long run you are probably better off looking at 2.0 if you are
looking to deploy.
