static interface shuts down on disconnect


I've got a server which is running several databases and web services, which is connected to both public and private networks, via different physical network ports.

All of the services communicate with each other using the private IP which is bound to the static ip address of the private connection (on eth1). This server is self contained, so the private connection is purely so that other private computers can also access the databases contained on the machine.

However, when I physically unplug the cable from the private network eth1 goes down, and looses it's IP address, hence all the services on that machine stop being able to communicate with each other.

How do I tell NetworkManager, not to shut down that interface on physical disconnect? It should be up, all the time. All physical interfaces on that machine should be up all the time.
