After XgOS install or upgrade or installing a new Gen2 Front Panel, the 'ethmgmt' network interface is not found. Without the 'ethmgmt' network interface present, networking cannot be configured to connect the Fabric Interconnect to a network.

Reinstalling the XgOS from scratch also doesn't resolve the problem.
XgOS install or upgrade/downgrade or brand new Gen2 Front Panel installation.
