The link you attached is for installing the engine on a stand alone machine.
In case you want to have the engine and the host on the same machine you should install hosted-engine:

I'm trying to install both the oVirt engine (so I have the API), and hypervisor on the same machine. I'm hoping I don't need cockpit, and I can write some custom scripts to manage oVirt through the API. I tried a couple ways, and both were blocked:

# on CentOS 9 stream, installing oVirt engine:
On a fresh CentOS install, tried following the directions [here](https://www.ovirt.org/documentation/installing_ovirt_as_a_standalone_manager_with_local_databases/#Installing_RHEL_for_RHVM_SM_localDB_deploy). They failed at step 3.2, when adding the modules (missing groups or modules). Tried skipping it, but step 3.3.2 failed when running `dnf install ovirt-engine`, package couldn't be found. The closest package I see is `ovirt-hosted-engine-setup-2.5.4-1.el9.noarch`. Is that what I want?

# On oVirt node, installing engine:
Couldn't get the networking working, even though I added it during the install process. Also tried wired connection, and no luck. Blocked early on, but read this was SUPER minimal anyway, so maybe this wasn't the right path.

I'm just trying to have a working API, along side the hypervisor to run vm's, both on the same machine. I'm down to go a third way too, if anyone has any ideas. Thanks!
