Xamarin log files from parallels & MonoTouchVS logs from build host
Screenshot of the error:
While testing an unrelated case in Visual Studio in Parallels, I attempted to connect to the build host; which is the same machine.
There should be only one instance of "Kents-MacBook-Pro.local" since I only have one Macbook pro.
There are two instances:
When trying to connect to each of these, I noticed that only I was only able to successfully connect to the "Kents-MacBook-Pro-2.local" instance, and not the other one.

I just noticed the Operating system info says "Kents-MacBook-Pro-3.local", not sure if that's related but it seems strange.
It did seem to take several tries regardless to get the build host to connect again, so I'm not sure if some of the issues might be unrelated to this unusual behavior.
I have tried to reproduce this issue at my end. I have followed below steps:
1. Open VS and connected it to Mac Build Host successfully.
2. Open another instance of VS and try to connect this instance on VS with same mac build host
But I am not seeing multiple Mac build host in 'Connect to a Xamarin.iOS Build Host' window.
Could you please let me know if I have missed any steps to reproduce this issue?
If you are still able to reproduce this issue then also add 'Zip Xamarin Logs' via Help-> Zip Xamarin Logs.
Thanks for the update Kent! Indeed fine to RESOLVE NOT_REPRODUCIBLE.
