IMDBI Setting configuration at load time and at use time


I was wondering if it is possible to have multiple instances of im_dbi at one time. It is important for access to my global variables. If it is possibe, then  my question is: does NXLog make nx_im_dbi_conf_t for each module instance? Where I should store variables for module if I want to have per load visibility?

UNC Paths in im_file

Not sure it can be achieved but wanted to check as to what was the best way to use UNC names in the File path. 

I want to stage files locally from a remote location, digest and then delete the files.

I have tried "//FileServer/directory/file as well as "\\FileServer/directory/file" without success.

Is it possible to use a variation of im_exec such as 

<Input mapdrive>

  Module  im_file

command  net
