I have a statically configured eth1 which I cannot seem to get working. It was working fine, then I rebooted and now it no longer works.

When I do ifdown eth1 I get:
Code:
ifdown: interface eth1 not configured
When I do ifup eth1 I get:
Code:
SIOCADDRT: No such process
Failed to bring up eth1.
Here is the relevant portion of my /etc/network/interfaces file:
Code:
iface eth1 inet static
address 10.250.0.10
netmask 255.255.255.248
gateway 10.250.0.1

auto eth1
Anyone have any ideas why this might be happening? Thanks.
