      Description

      Currently the status tool does not distinguish between Authentication/Authorization errors and other IO errors and just throws a generic Exception with the 401 HTML output from Jetty:

      $ bin/solr status
      
      Found 1 Solr nodes: 
      
      Solr process 4332 running on port 8983
      
      ERROR: Failed to get system information from http://localhost:8983/solr due to: org.apache.http.client.ClientProtocolException: Expected JSON response from server but received: <html>
      <head>
      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8"/>
      <title>Error 401 require authentication</title>
      </head>
      <body><h2>HTTP ERROR 401</h2>
      <p>Problem accessing /solr/admin/info/system. Reason:
      <pre>    require authentication</pre></p>
      </body>
      </html>
      
      Typically, this indicates a problem with the Solr server; check the Solr server logs for more information.
      

      Instead, the tool should exit with a clear message that authentication is required, and the status tool should throw a security related exception that tool consumers (such as assertTool) can detect. Due to this assert -u also fails when Solr is password protected.
