comment virsh: VM console does not show any output
Sure, which shows that extensions have sometimes meaning, even in a linux environment, which shows that the qcow2 format could be inferred from the .qcow2 extension even without specifying it manually, if the tool was so implemented, which is what I was assuming all along (and was obviously wrong), mainly because I did not know that there was a (strange?!) syntax to specify the format of the disk image. Anyways, thanks for your help.

Not only convenience: the import mechanism in python (for example) only works with files ending in .py. If you want another suffix, you will need quite a bit of hacking around. The same is true for other tools. The OS does not enforce extensions, but some tools do.

Sure, but it would be very strange to suffix a python script with .sh or a bash script with .py (and would probably not work in some cases: you can not import a python module which does not end in .py for example)

Thanks, I'll consider installing that (if I ever get it running for Ubuntu)

Having Ubuntu as host OS, and being Ubuntu badly supported by HP, I doubt that I have any "Management Agent" (never heard of it) installed. I have just vanilla Ubuntu running. Anyway, just for upgrading the iLO firmware it is too much hassle to care about that many moving parts. Get .bin file, upload with web interface, and bum, iLO firmware upgraded. That easy!

I have never used HP support before (which I am glad of), but now I see that Ubuntu is just second citizen for them. On the other hand, I have been running Ubuntu (10.04 and 12.04) for years without issues in this HP Proliant DL380 G7

Thanks, I found it myself. The problem all along was that I was selecting my OS (Ubuntu 12.04) and apparently HP does not offer a firmware installer for Ubuntu. Now I have selected Red Hat and there it is: an installer (.scexe executable) which I can unpack. My confusion comes from the fact that I did not know what to expect, and that selecting my host OS was offering some downloads, but no firmware and no firmware installer. Now the iLO is updating, hopefully without problems.

Thanks for your reply. I am connecting from a linux (Ubuntu) system. Do you have a link to an Ubuntu installer? Is there no direct link to the .bin firmware, which is (I presume) OS independent?
