The build host often displays the "starting..." status when it attempts to reconenct to the build host even after several minutes. I often click the build host icon and attempt to manually disconnect and connect, but the disconnect context menu action rarely works. I have to restart visual studio in order to successfully reconnect to the build host. I do this 5-6 times a day.
I've created an unlisted short video illustration of the scenario:
I would like one of two results as a fix:
Option 1. The build host should successfully reconnect after unlocking the computer from taking a quick break or any other reason for disconnect.
Option 2. Be able to manually disconnect from the build host, then manually reconnect.

I tried to reproduce this using 18.104.22.168 (3f99c5a) and here are my findings:
XMA automatically reconnects after locking my machine and logging back in.
XMA does not automatically reconnect, and remains in a disconnected state after putting my machine to sleep and logging back in. I have to manually initiate the connection sequence, and then a successful connection is established.

Some issues regarding Agent and Broker reconnection has been identified and fixed properly, so you shouldn't see this behaviour again.
The fixes will be available from 15.4 version.
I've not seen this issue in a while. Sorry I missed your message Ben.
