Ok, I checked the logs, it failed to get DB connection. The postgresql had not started on its own. I have restarted the service manually, but now, I didnt find any documentation to restart the ovirt -engine again. i mean after performing a service postgresql start,what else do i need to do?

Just follow the simple logic, going from the top of the stack downwards when shutting down and then reverse is when turning on.

So what shutting down it's
1. VMs off
2. storage domains in maintenance
3. hosts in maintenance
4. shutdown engine host, and hypervisors
5. shutdown the SAN box

And vice versa when turning on, where you need to activate the parts that are in maintenance mode

If after this something is wrong, please report
