I had a similar problem on a z13 configuring multiple OSAs. Generally I let sshd wait for the interfaces to be fully initialized and sshd would successfully start afterwards and the system came up.
I'll be able to check my modification on Monday, maybe that will help on hercules, too.
So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
I also confirm Bercik's finding from an previous e-mail (18 Jun 2017, https://lists.debian.org/debian-s390/2017/06/msg00006.html) - Debian 9 IPL stops when network interfaces configuration is coming up.
Last visible message is "Configure the network device".
Debian 8.9 with same Hercules configuration shows the expected network configuration menu.
Tested with: Debian 9.1 netinst
p.s. while using Debian 8.9, the SSH server for the installer fails to sent the password prompt (ie. transport layer is working, but user authentication isn't) - any ideas?
