Please create a new report on
Developer Community with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
# Steps to reproduce
Click the Xamarin Mac Agent in the toolbar. Prior to this update, it used to connect automatically after I connected one time.
It sees the mac, and after authentication just shows the spinner.
After some time it shows the connection
At times, it loses the connection. Never used to happen.
# Expected behavior
Connection is persistent
# Actual behavior
# Supplemental info (logs, images, videos)
# Test environment (full version information)
Could you please provide some additional information to help us diagnose this issue?
- First and most important, could you provide logs when this behavior occurs? You can go to "Help > Xamarin > Zip Logs..." and then attach the file to this bug.
- When you see the spinner, it may just be starting the agents on the Mac. Could you please check the Xamarin Output (from the Output window). It should say that it is starting Agents. For example:
>Starting Agent Build 184.108.40.2060...
>Agent Build 220.127.116.110 is running
- Also, could you please provide the Xamarin.iOS and desktop Mono versions on the Mac? This can be easily retrieved from the About Xamarin Studio page on Mac.
It happened several times yesterday, but I haven't been able to reproduce the issue today. I'll close the issue for now but will reopen and attach the information if I experience the issue at a later time.
