1394 and serial together

I’ve two debuggee(s) one does not have 1394, and I’m having problem
connecting to the machines that has serial.

Just a quick Q, is the setup okay ?.

I will be able to isolate the problem, but the debugger machine has both
1394 and serial, so I should be able to debug under both transport !!!

Yes, this is a supported scenario. The serial port debugging is as
simple as a CreateFile on the COM port, which basically only requires
your COM port actually be working, and should be unrelated to any 1394
problems you have.

Do you find that the 1394 debugging works fine while you’re not using
the serial port? Do you find that the serial debugging works fine
without 1394?

I start 2 instances of windbg on the host. One connects to FW target the
other to serial target and I don’t use any global environment variables for
connection though.

Works fine for me.

Great !.

Yes, 1394 works fine. Just the serial.

I will find it.

Thx

I haven’t run the 'Bag seriously in a while, so I can’t verify that it’s
working this way today with the latest release, but it certainly worked
for me that way in the past.

One really basic rule, which you probably aren’t violating, but I’ll
mention it anyway. You have to run two instances of the 'Bag on your
debugger host, one hooked up to the serial machine, and the other hooked
up to 1394. You can’t try to debug two systems in one 'Bag instance.

I just found and resolved the best bug so far !.

By looking at a server class machine standing up-right, going from top to bottom ( com2 is the first, and com1 is the second ). And the mother board is on the left surface when you look straight from the back ( usually all the sockets, connector ) etc.

Ans: THE DESIGNER MUST READ RIGHT TO LEFT :-).

Unfortunately, this hard-earned knowledge does not port to any other
piece of hardware, even from the same manufacturer.

Would it really cost so much to put a COM1 sticker onto the plastic when
shipping a new computer?

All I can say is lack of wisdom !!!.

Otherwise putting colors, labelling as you said does not cost anything.
