Cannot restart network service

I was trying to configure a static IP address on my Linux machine (Fedora 19 ). However when I was trying to restart my using systemctl restart network.service, I was unable to do so.

[root@xyz network-scripts]# systemctl restart network.service
Job failed. See system journal and 'systemctl status' for details.

I tried to reboot my system and re execute the command, but still I am getting the same error. Also I am enable to access internet on my system.

Can anyone help me out with this.
