- Make sure mac host is configured properly with Xcode8 GM
- Make sure Tools > Options > Xamarin > iOS SDK is set to Xcode8 GM

Open a Xamarin.iOS project and try to coneect to Mac host. It results in limited connection due to:

An error occured starting the IDB agent: The IDB Agent initialization exceeded the timeout of 60000 millisecs without receiving confirmation from the Agent.

Logs attached.

Apparently this is caused because my Xamarin Studio preferences (on the Mac) did not have the Xcode SDK path properly set. When I set that, the agent connects correctly. 

XVS should not have this dependency on what XS preferences are, hence a new bug is filed: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=44071
