I tested things to make sure it could resolve before I started the 'hosted-engine --deploy'. > You might need to answer "Yes" to the /etc/hosts question..

That is my take as well. Scratching my head as I config'ed dnsmasq to provide local dns and to read from /etc/hosts for hosted-engine-1.pcstrac.com. The only thing I think I flubbed was neglecting to add the host's IP to the host's /etc/resolv.conf. Scrubbing and staring again.
