GPIB / USB Controller

Hi,
we would like to use two GPIB/USB controller (Agilent 82357B) on the same GPIB bus to operate the attached GPIB devices (multimeters, powersupply etc.) from two different computers without the need to plug out the other controller. (Only one computer needs GPIB control at a time).
I like to know if it possible to switch the active host controller on the bus via software, e.g. from Labview.  In the moment, only the one which is activated (plugged into usb) first, is accessible in the I/O Control panel or from VISA. The GPIB addresses are already set to different numbers.

Kind regards,

Dave
