First upload all the IE01 equipments.

Next give a explicit COMMIT and then try to upload IE02 equipments..

You can try WAIT <n> statement also. So that it will wait for few seconds and execute next upload. So the lock may released in that time.

It is either a bug (check SAP notes), or more probably an asynchronous update/lock which is not finished yet.

So simply execute the BDC in synchonous update mode (S or L). For more information, read paragraph #12 in [wiki BDC FAQ about errors|] for more information, and [wiki BDC about update mode|].
