Is there any way to use the Jazz Visual Studio SCM plugin and the command line simultaneously?

Bob Beauchaine (11) | asked Apr 30 '19, 8:04 p.m.

 Coming from a Git background, I like the granularity of the command line - but for some situations, the Gui integration with VS is also useful.  

I have found that I cannot use both at the same time.  If I have a solution loaded in VS using the RTC SCM integration and the IBM extensions loaded, then open a shell to the command line to do some SCM tasks, I get the error "Could not initialize data area. Could not lock <workspace> - locked by other process."  Even though I am not actively doing anything with source control in Visual Studio, I am effectively unable to use the command line without shutting down the solution.

Yes you can run both on the same sandbox but you need to use 'lscm' instead of 'scm' to run the commands.
