Currently the `mtbservergui.log` file contains some messages that are marked as "Activation error", but are just part of the normal license refresh process:
> [21-Jun-2014 14:34:10] Activation error: Initial entitlements: iOS Business 2015-06-13 08:22:43Z

To reduce confusion, perhaps these "errors" could be renamed to "Activation info" or something similar.
## Version information
I have successfully able to reproduce this issue at my end. Below are the steps to reproduce this issue:
1. Install the latest build on mac (XS 5.3 (Build 441) + XI 188.8.131.52 + XA 4.16.0-16) as well as on windows (XS 5.3 (Build 441) + XVS 3.5.57)
2. Make a connection through build Host (Pairing and all)
3. Now On windows machine Activate the iOS license via VS
4. On the Mac machine navigate to the path "/Users/<machine_Name>/Library/Logs/Xamarin/MonoTouchVS"
5. Open the log file: "mtbservergui.log"
6. Observe that the file contains some messages that are marked as "Activation error", but those are just the part of the normal license refresh process.
Expected result as per the bug reported: The text "Activation error" should be replaced with "Activation info" as these are just the license refresh process and not any kind of error logs. Moreover, it will avoid confusion.
