Are you using any other client (such as RTC Eclipse/Visual Studio client) that is using the same sandbox? If so, you may see this error because one of the client has the lock on that sandbox.

Yes, i couldn't realize that the RTC client on the same sandbox was open and which was throwing the error.
Now i see that the command is being executed but since last 8 mins its trying to checkin and hasn't finished the command yet.  The checkin has few files which are sized few kbs.

 By the way, are you using 'scm' or 'lscm' to run the commands? If the RTC rich client was started first then you can still run the commands using 'lscm' as 'lscm' will use the daemon started by the rich client.

Note: This kind of usage might result in the UI showing up because the command is using the daemon started by the rich client.

I am using 'scm' to run the commands.  I am kicking off the tests from my Jenkins server.  I still see the checkin command is in progress and not finishing yet.  What could be the problem here?  It was working fine earlier when i tried to execute it from command line.

Not sure. You mean the checkin command never returned or failed with a return code?
