RHV-H installation failed with folowing error in the /var/log/ovirt-engine/host-deploy/ovirt-host-deploy-ansible

2022-03-02 13:20:06 MYT - fatal: [host]: FAILED! => {"changed": true, "cmd": ["vdsm-tool", "configure", "--force"], "delta": "0:00:05.144490", "end": "2022-03-02 13:20:03.622760", "msg": "n

So vdsm-tool fails with following error:

libsepol.context_from_record: type cloud_what_var_cache_t is not defined
libsepol.context_from_record: could not create context structure
