VSA, N9030A, SCPI question

I have the updated VSA software [89601B v14] and the Spec An (SAn) software [v08.04] on a N9030A.

I am able to initiate the VSA software through SCPI command ":INST:SEL VSA89601"

Is there a way to send VSA SCPI commands through the SAn SCPI interface? When the VSA software is active its still returning the SAn software *IDN? as the SAn SCPI interface.

Note: Im running my commands through the Linux usbtmc driver, but i am able to use the LAN connection also. I would like to keep everything in Linux (avoiding COM objects if possible).
