I'd personally put this file elsewhere - /var/lib/ovirt-engine/ is owned by
the engine, should be considered semi-private - i.e. might change in the
future, cleaned up on upgrades etc. Not that any of this happens today, just
be on the safe side.

You should use an answer file specific to the exact state.

Run engine-setup manually without supplying an answer file, then use the
one generated.

You are welcome to open an RFE "engine-setup should have an option 
or something like that.
