this question may overlap into hardware and firmware, but please read on.
I have a custom X64 platform with supported Ethernet controller to debug this platform over Erthernet from host PC. Setting up dbgsettings works as expected, and I can happily run WinDbg on host PC to debug that target platform.... only after it booted up and stays that way.
If I allow target platform to enter a low power state, then WinDbg hangs. When target platform returns to S0 WinDbg on PC is still hung.
OK maybe it is not the supported way, so I reboot target platform - WinDbg connects right away. Then I exist WinDbg and let target platform go through sleep-wake cycle. Then try connect WinDbg - nope, no matter what tried, does not connect after wake from sleep.
So my question distills to a simple one: should kernel debugging over Ethernet survive sleep-wake cycles on target platform? Is it a supported scenario? Or it depends on what was implemented or not in UEFI for such operation?
