I actually managed to bypass the check by editing he.py and deleting the
"raise" statement, preventing hosted-engine from bombing out because it
wasn't able to connect to the nodes.
>From there I managed to renew the certificates (see second mail), and even
connected two of the 3 nodes successfully (I had to create new temporary
vdsm certificates, get them semi-connected to the engine, and then
"re-enroll certificates" from the UI. Once I had a limping cluster up, I
shut everything down cleanly, and... and redeployed the cluster from
scratch. (with all the failed attempts, my HE was completely busted).
That said, I wonder if having to short circuit the environment variable
isn't a bit over-complicated, given the considerable number of cert related

But thanks for the heads-up.

Q: I'm willing to try and document all the steps I did, in my semi-success
attempt to save my cluster.
That said, I rather not document wrong / broken steps. Can anyone @RH
review my writeup?
