Did you tried following this:

The oVirt engine runs on a VM, than you need al least two physical hosts
and and some kind of shared storage (NFS, iSCSI, Gluster, FC).

You should run hosted-engine --deploy on the first host, it configures it
and starts the engine VM here.

Then you should run hosted-engine --deploy also the the second host
pointing to the same shared storage. The setup will find the existing
storage domain and it asks is you want to add an host, you have to say yes,
this is host 2.
At this point the setup will ask you the address of the first host to
download an answerfile from there to configure the second host as the first
without having you to manually enter the same data.

The engine VM is on its own dedicated storage domain, you need an
additional one for other VMs.

sorry, can you better explain the issue or add a log?

GlusterFS is just an option. iptables instead of Firewalld and no
NetworkManager are mandatory.
