Hi,

I've started having an issue in the last few days that's preventing us being able to create an iOS archive for deployment. We use VS2019 on windows and use a macincloud server for our building.

Below is what the Xamarin output shows,

At this point VS is connected to the Mac, and we can perform builds successfully, it's just the archiving process that seemingly can't establish a connection.

Has anyone any ideas?

Thanks
