vilock / unlock operations for the 34980

I've trying to run 2 different tests in paralell (run from 2 computers)  with one 34980, sending SCPI commands. In order to prevent access to the instrument at the same time I've been playing with the visa lock / unlock functions. The idea is that each test checks for the "locked" flag to be clear before performing a step, else it waits a while and checks again.

The problem is that since each test is linked to a different visa object (even if it's the same instrument) then there are 2 different flags, each one only accesible from its own pc. 

Anybody have some suggestions on how to make this work?

Thanks
