Ok, I'll try.
So when bug solved, if I have a problem with the engine and for example I'm
not able to connect to it through ssh and/or web admin console, what other
means would I have to connect to it console and check (eg if it is in
kernel panic for any reason)?
During setup I was proposed to connect via remote-viewer via a temporary
password; I imagine this way is not usable after install, correct?

Ah, ok. I thought that the initial storage domain would have become the
first storage domain for general VMs purposes too...
So actually if on dedicated filesystem/device, it could be small in size,
say 5-10Gb if I use the appliance, correct?

here it is:

In case I want to setup a single host with self hosted engine, could I
configure on hypervisor
a) one NFS share for sh engine
b) one NFS share for ISO DOMAIN
c) a local filesystem to be used to create then a local POSIX complant FS
storage domain
and work this way as a replacement of all-in-one?

Ok. And for starting all again, is this correct:

a) power on hypevisor
b) hosted-engine --set-maintenance --mode=none

other steps required?
