Thank you. I tried that, but does not work. I used Ubuntu 11.10, Python
2.7, Virtualbox 4.1.8, SDK 3.2.12, and a plain XP guest VM.

Is there something very fundamental I am missing?

Regards,
Bikram

import sys
import vboxapi


vb_mgr = vboxapi.VirtualBoxManager(None, None)
vbox = vb_mgr.vbox
mgr = vb_mgr.mgr
constants = vb_mgr.constants

name = "cuckoo3"

machine = vbox.findMachine(name)
print "Found the machine"

session = mgr.getSessionObject(vbox)

try:
        machine.lockMachine(session, constants.LockType_Shared)

except Exception, why:
        print "Unable to lock machine:",why
        #sys.exit(-1);
        raise

# here we can do what we need with the VM

print "Never reached here!"
session.unlockMachine()

+++++
