Interface in Auto Shutdown... how to bring it back up?

My PIX seemed to be acting strangely as my SYSLOG was not geting any messages.  I went in and looked at the Running Config and I see this line of code:
interface ethernet1 auto shutdown
Of course when operating normally it says:
interface ethernet1 100full

What command, or series of commands, should I issue to correct this.  When looing at the various inetrface command options (via an "inteface ?" input at on command line), it doesn't look like "noshut" is a valid option.

Any advice?

do you have an ethernet cable connected to this interface?
if so just try

ip address interface ethernet1 x.x.x.x x.x.x.x auto
