Remember there are charts which say which versions of HMC are compatible
with which versions of firmware
IBM - FLRT Supported code combinations for IBM Power Systems
Hopefully you didn't upgrade one or the other outside the overlaps.

"She's dead Jim" is all the comes to mind....

Finally got around to updating the HMC (went well) and then decided to
bite the bullet and upgrade the firmware on my Power 9. All seemed to
be going well until I got to the activating stage where the FSP was
supposed to reboot. It never came back....

Upgraded the firmware from VL910 to VL950. System is a 9009-41A, IBM i
at 7.4 (latest TR and PTF IIRC). The error I see on the system panel in
the HMC is "Firmware not ready" - No connection 0406-0001-000000. All
things point to the FW upgrade failing somehow. The system is remote so
I will need to get in front of it to see what SRC's are displaying. Not
sure how to recover from a firmware upgrade failure at this point. No
hardware support on this box, just SWMA.
