That would be the server side, yes. But -- as I mentioned before -- I
strongly suggest to use a different AoE initiator like ggaoed or qaoed. I
am pretty sure performance will not be what you'd expect it to be with

On the client side you need to load the "aoe" module. The default module in
the kernel is v47. I'd suggest to upgrade to v74 from upstream/Coraid as
well -- all those revisions between v47 and v74 bring major and minor
enhancements that are just worth it.
You might want to tell the kernel module to use only certain interfaces for
AoE (like this for example: 'modprobe aoe aoe_iflist=eth1,eth2,eth3,eth4')
