Dear all,
I had a similar problem with engine certificate and solved it, reading this thread.
The strange thing is that now every time I log on the engine I get warnings about host certificates about to expire, even if the expiry date is in 2023. This looks weird to me and I wonder if there is somewhere a setting to specify how in advance the warning should be given.

Here is an example:

Any hint?

Hi Guillaume,

to renew host certificates you need to perform following actions in webadmin or RESTAPI:

1. Move the host to Maintenance status
2. Execute Enroll Certificates for the host
3. Watch Events on the host to see if Enroll Certificates finished successfully
4. Execute Activate for the host

We are receiving the following notifications from our ovirt manager  :
Message:Engine's certification is about to expire at 2022-05-03. Please renew the engine's certification.

Effectively : 
# openssl x509 -in /etc/pki/ovirt-engine/certs/engine.cer -startdate -enddate -noout
notBefore=Mar 30 04:48:15 2021 GMT
notAfter=May  3 04:48:15 2022 GMT

However I can not find any documentation on how to renew this certificate.
The following doc only convers changing apache-ca.pem & apache.cer, and not engine.cer

Any help ?
