Thank you both for your reply. The IP addresses are already assigned. When I run ifconfig, it shows all of the external IP addresses already assigned to eth1:1, 1:2, etc but when I go to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ I can see ifcfg-eth0 and eth1, but I'm not finding ifcfg-eth1:1 or 1:2. Since they are already assigned to the external nic (they are all reachable by ping and other services) and they show up properly in ifconfig, shouldn't ifcfg-eth1:1 and the others already exist? That is what is throwing me off.
I understand that if these external IP addresses are not yet assigned to the nic that I would create these ifcfg- files, but they are already assigned and working, so I thought the files would already be there. If they were not configured in this manner, is there another file that they could be in? Here is what I have when I list the contents of /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/:
ifcfg-eth0 ifdown-isdn ifup-aliases ifup-plusb ifup-wireless
ifcfg-eth1 ifdown-post ifup-ippp ifup-post init.ipv6-global
ifcfg-lo ifdown-ppp ifup-ipv6 ifup-ppp network-functions
ifdown ifdown-sit ifup-ipx ifup-routes network-functions-ipv6
ifdown-ippp ifdown-sl ifup-isdn ifup-sit
ifdown-ipv6 ifup ifup-plip ifup-sl
