ESD Contact Discharge IEC 61000-4-2 issue

Hello NXP community,

During our CE certification, we had to test ESD contact discharge on our product, but when we discharge in our ethernet socket, the ethernet controller stopped working. But, after a reboot, the controller restarts correctly without being damaged. 
My question is, Is there a protection module into the iMX6UL which stops the ethernet controller if ESD discharge happens ?

If not, how can I check if ethernet controller has stopped due to ESD discharge and try to restart it in software ?
Best Regards,
Luc
