Docker for Windows

We have remote debugging working for Docker for Windows. Has anyone been able to do kernel debugging using Docker For Windows on an anniversary build? Windows Server 2016?

Thanks,
Paul

    I haven't tried. I'd be interested to hear anyone's experience.

    Scott,
    I'll try to get it going tomorrow and let you know. Visual Studio debugging remotely in user-mode appears to work fine. For kernel-mode when an OS is virtualized, one uses named pipes. With containers I'm not sure if COMn can be configured as a named pipe. It's looking like the latest patch from MS has got docker on anniversary working more like how it works on Server 2016, but this is a guess. Maybe I can configure the latest version to use hyper visor for the Windows containers and maybe I can configure a named pipe there.

    Right now it is a guessing game here as our team is fairly new to Docker for Windows. They asked me to try and see if kernel-mode can be debugged. It's not really a requirement now, but if it does work it would be nice to know.
