How to use debugging tools to perform remote kernel debug?. This document explains the debuggers used and the steps needed to attach and perform live debugging. Windows Operating system consists of 2 modes User mode and Kernel mode. User mode applications such as Wordpad , Notepad , managed applications , unmanaged applications executes at User mode and Operating system core components such as File system drivers, Network stack , Interrupt controllers , Memory management, Graphics , GDI are managed at kernel level.
There are many instances where an Engineer has to perform live debugging on a non-responsive operating system or debug an application remotely to understand the interaction between user application and kernel mode subsystem or driver. This article will help Engineers to perform live debugging from Host to the Target using Namepipe
Below article explains the steps involve to successfuly perform remote debugging on a VM.
