*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 15432 ***
Today I have checked this issue with following builds:
VS 2013 / 2012
iOS for VS 1.8.365
We observed that when we close the Xamarin.iOS build host from connected
machine and build the application it does not prompt us to connect to another
build host. If we click on start button it display an error 'Connection to
Xamarin.iOS Build Host failed. Double click here to select a server'. After
clicking on this error, 'Connect to Xamarin.iOS Build Host' appears. This is
the screencast for the same: http://screencast.com/t/h16qd5S9
Changing the status to Verified.
