RHEV Hosted Engine vm-status reports incorrect host-id values

Solution Verified - Updated -


Run hosted-engine --vm-status and it gives different responses from each host and none look good.
Host h3 was tried out with host-id 10 which failed installation but its still showing. It was completely rebuild and put back as host-id 3. But host-id 10 is still present.
How to clean hosted-engine metadata and to sync it with the correct values?
