If the old setup is working, I would keep it, and manually update the provider and openvswitch (yum update ...). In the future 4.2 I hope the feature of re-using an existing provider will already be there.
The setup is asking for user and password because we do not store these values across invocations of engine-setup. During a fresh install run we have it, as the user has to set it up, on update runs we don't. The provider needs this in order to authenticate users using ovirt-engine authentication. Ovirt authentication for the provider can be disabled, but this has to be done manually.
