My VS2017 is connected to the Mac and I can run iOS apps on the remote sim.
If I open the previewer it tells me I have to connect to a Mac build host.
It shows me all the Macs and the correct one is already connected (and the connect button is disabled).

See screenshots.

Can you attach the logs from that session? Help -> Zip Xamarin Logs (or somewhere in there).

I attached zipped logs of the last 7 days. I reported the bug shortly after the problem.

Meanwhile, the previewer is working. I rebooted the Windows machine and the Mac. So it was a temporary issue but maybe still wort investigating.

I'm unable to reproduce this issue using Visual Studio 2017 version 15.4 Preview 4. 

Rene, are you still able to reproduce this issue on the latest builds?
Comment 7 René 2017-10-04 10:24:02 UTC
Seems to work, yes.
Comment 8 Pierce Boggan [MSFT] 2017-10-20 20:59:12 UTC
Awesome, marking as RESOLVED -> NOT REPRODUCIBLE. Please feel free to re-open if you hit this again. :)

Thanks again for filing this issue, Rene!
