You can reboot the system, just in case the kernel was updated.
You can clean the existing system from the UI itself.
Upon selecting the option to deploy a Hyperconverged Infrastructure, it'll give you an option to clean the existing setup.
Also you need to ensure that ssh-key is available in the hosts file, so that ansible can execute roles on the server.
You can refer to this doc as well -

It seems vdsm packages are missing.
Can you try installing vdsm-gluster and ovirt-engine-appliance packages?
In case you face repo issues, just install yum install
Then try again.

Ok, thanks.
The appliance was already installed but vdsm-gluster was indeed missing.

So currently before deployment I executed on CentOS host (initially installed choosing "server" option):
yum update
yum install
yum update
yum install cockpit-ovirt-dashboard gluster-ansible-roles glusterfs-server vdsm-gluster
systemctl enable --now cockpit.socket

Is there a list of all what is needed for this test lab single host HCI with gluster? Anything else?

And what is the safe way to clean up before retrying deploy?
