Remote Debugging SharePoint 2013

Overview:  Object reference not set to an instance of an object is all the information I have in my customers ULS logs.  I need to debug an application in production that does not contain Visual Studio 2012.

My Steps:
  • Ran the Remote Debugguer (msvsmon.exe) on 1 of the production servers
  • Added a host file to point to my production server "SP-WFE1" (optional depending on where the web requests originate from)
  • Opened Visual Studio 2012 on a VM containing the projected (hooked up to TFS 2012) and opened the solution (.sln).
  • Select Tools > Attach to Process

..... Finish when time permits
