I’m not quite sure about configuring the appliance with cloud-init. I think I 
might know what you mean. Maybe that is the part of the setup that did not 
happen for me.
I ended up creating my own hosted engine with a CDROM ISO to get me going today.
Thank you.

Did you try configuring the appliance with cloud-init?
Can you please attach hosted-engine-setup logs?
