"2 Loading The aoe Kernel Module On Both Systems

server1/server2:

Before we start, we must make sure that the the kernel supports AoE:

grep ATA_OVER /boot/config-`uname -r`

This should display something like this:

server2:~# grep ATA_OVER /boot/config-`uname -r`
CONFIG_ATA_OVER_ETH=m
server2:~#

This means that AoE was built as a kernel module. Let's check if the module is already loaded:

lsmod | grep aoe

If you get nothing back, this means it's not loaded. In this case we can load it as follows:

modprobe aoe"
