That question is:
 Add lines for the appliance itself and for this host to /etc/hosts on the
engine VM?
 Note: ensuring that this host could resolve the engine VM hostname is
still up to you

As Didi stated the properly way to use that is with a properly working
DHCP/DNS infrastructure having each host resolving each others and so on.
Then hosted-engine setup will ask you about engine VM mac address and you
have to create a reservation for that on your infrastructure.

For smaller/test deployment where a DHCP server is not present we are
providing also a static IP addressing option for the engine appliance:
you can specify an IP address for your new VM and it will be configured in
the appliance via cloud-init.
Then your host should be able to resolve it and so, if you don't have a
registering DNS,  it's up to you to configure it via /etc/hosts on your

Cause the appliance deployment is fully automated you don't have the time
to do it on the appliance and so we provided a way to inject the host
address into /etc/hosts on the appliance.
It's still up to you to add other hosts there if you want to deploy
additional ones.
So having a properly working DNS and DHCP server is definitively a better

1. Hit your screen prefix combination ( C-a / control + A by default), then
hit Escape .
2. Move up/down with the arrow keys to scrool the output buffer.
3. When you're done, hit Return twice to get back to the end of the scroll

hosted-engine --deploy

Depending from where it stopped it could be that you have to manually
destroy your previous empty appliance instance and cleanup its storage
before being able to retry.
