Error booting Vagrant Ethernet Bridge [Linux]

After running vagrant up you receive a message like the following, and the ethernet bridge is not working / assigned the wrong IP range.

[node1] Configuring and enabling network interfaces...
The following SSH command responded with a non-zero exit status.
Vagrant assumes that this means the command failed!

/sbin/ifup eth1 2> /dev/null

The problem may be that the vagrant networking cached settings have become stale. This will happen when the box is moved between folders or servers.

Start the vagrant box, ssh into the box and remove the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

Installing vagrant-triggers a halt trigger can be created to delete this before the box is shut down.
