Attached Xamarin Logs.
i have once again reproduced issue on my machine and Have generated fresh logs , Please go through them and let me know if more info needed.
Also when mac agent gets connected , i am seeing the error under intelliSense that
[Failure] Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Users\User\documents\visual studio 2015\Projects\SampleDemo\SampleDemo\obj\iPhoneSimulator\Debug\TemporaryGeneratedFile_E7A71F73-0F8D-4B9B-B56E-8E70B10BC5D3.cs'.

These logs look like they're from a master build, not a C9 build.
Just to confirm - you are completely unable to get any storyboard to render? You cannot open an iOS, WatchOS or tvOS storyboard?
When you hit this error can you try killing the `CoreSimulatorService` process and see if that fixes it?
Sorry alan i was not able to mention this at first !
After creating a new Single View iOS app
Condition 1 -If Mac agent is connected and Opened StoryBoard.
Result- Able to see the storyboard for iOS/WatchOS/TVoS , Not issue at this point
Condition 2 -If Mac Agent is not connected and opened Storyboard
-connect to mac server error message is displayed
This point when we tried to connect mac agent by clicking on the "Connect to mac server" on storyboard , I am able to see this issue.
So this issue lies under condition 2.
If i gone via condition 1 , i am able to see the storyboard.
Also i tried killing the `CoreSimulatorService` process but i am still getting the error ! Issue is whenever i tried to connect the mac Agent from the storyboard error message , we are not able to view storyboard.
Fixed in version 220.127.116.117 (master)

@gaurav please test from a build from XVS/master. And I'll see about getting this fix into d15-1
The issue is that the machine used for testing the fix has a misconfigured/broken/missing Xcode. The failure from the logs is:

[2017-03-17 18:07:46.4] ERROR: Could not connect to the remote mac:
We can improve the error message in this scenario, but for now can you list which Xcode is specified in your Visual Studio and confirm if it exists on your Mac agent?
Either way, this should be filed separately as it is unrelated to this patch and this bug.
If there is a mismatch we should file a bug against XVS itself as it should be complaining loudly when the Xcode the user choose does not exist.
I am able to get build for 126.96.36.1996 here: https://wrench.internalx.com/Wrench/ViewLane.aspx?lane_id=4590&host_id=406&revision_id=868699 &
Build 188.8.131.528 here: https://wrench.internalx.com/Wrench/ViewLane.aspx?lane_id=4571&host_id=406&revision_id=868612
But unable to find exact fixed build 184.108.40.2067. mean a while I have also verified on d15-1 build this bug is still reproducible.
It would be great if any one can provide me the link for fixed version.
