Symptoms

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.  When looking at the Fabric Interconnect over serial console the errors show that eth1 is being renamed to eth4.  The errors are also found in /var/log/kern.log.  Here are the errors where the network devices are being renamed:

(snip below is also found also in /var/log/kern.log)

 Reinstalling the XgOS from scratch also doesn't resolve the problem.

Changes

 XgOS install or upgrade/downgrade or brand new Gen2 Front Panel installation.
