How can I fix this warning? CoreSimulator tries to unload a CoreSimulatorService job

I have a warning in my build log in teamcity. I've updated Xcode on my CI-Server from 7.3.1 to 8. The step run successfully but I have this:

How can i fix this warning?


I had the same issue. I've to run both Xcode 7 (to build old version) and Xcode 8 (to build current develop branch) in my Jenkins server and I was having the issue all the time.

Solution:

launchctl remove com.apple.CoreSimulator.CoreSimulatorService || true

This happens because, even if you quit the simulator app, the service is still running. The above command is needed to remove the service called com.apple.CoreSimulator.CoreSimulatorService. The || true is to avoid failure when that service is not running.
