Handle unreachable ES host in settings check

What does this MR do?

Related to #299991 (closed)

Fixes an error if Elasticsearch is unreachable when checking if the Elasticsearch client is available using the ping method. The ping method only handles a types of errors so I added a more generic rescue (which was present previously and replaced another MR). I had trouble reproducing this manually so I added a spec which did fail and now passes.
