Fedora 27: Virtualized in Hyper-V, the network adapter is not appearing to the OS.

I have a Fedora 27 Workstation installation in a Hyper-V hypervisor. The VM has a Network Adapter added.

This network adapter is not showing up in the system, even though it was before (yesterday). I have no idea why this has happened. No changes have happened to the VM itself except that I've restarted the host and installed typical Windows Updates.

Example output:

# nmcli c

    inet 10.0.0.2/24 brd 10.0.0.255 scope global ToLAN-bridge

I've tried removing and re-adding the Network Adapter in Hyper-V.

I'm not sure how to troubleshoot a network adapter not showing up like this. I can't find anything in the message buffer of the kernel about this (dmesg).
