No, it did not complete successfully- the installer threw a error at the end 
"Failed to start service 'ovirt-ha-agent' " during the "Closing up" stage due 
to the (now fixed) bug with the ha-agent systemd startup script.... So should I 
copy the correct answers log from /var/lib/ovirt-hosted-engine-setup to 
/etc/ovirt-hosted-engine/answers.conf and try the setup again on the second

The answerfile is expected to be found in
/etc/ovirt-hosted-engine/answers.conf .
It's written there upon a successful completion of deploy.

Absolutely, I suggest you to start checking for 
/etc/ovirt-hosted-engine/answers.conf on the first host.
If the file is not here please check the setup logs on the first to ensure that 
it successful completed.

It's also always written to /var/lib/ovirt-hosted-engine-setup/answers/ .

You can also copy it by yourself to somefile and run:

hosted-engine --deploy --config-append=somefile

But I'd invest some time understanding why scp fails. Might be bad
name resolution?
