Detach attachments from a document to a network share using a scheduled agent

How can I detach attachments from a document to a network share using a scheduled agent? I can get it to detach to the local drive on the server, but when I try to detach to a network share using the UNC path, I get "Notes Error: Access denied." If I run the same agent from the client, it detaches fine.
The probable root of your problem is that the Notes Server doesn't have permission to write to the other file share. In John Chamberlain's LDD Today article Building Web applications in Domino 6: Accessing and protecting the file system he states:

If you want to map a directory that isn't under the Domino data directory, specify a fully qualified path. The directory can be located on any file system that is accessible to the server; a good rule of thumb is that if you can get a directory listing from an operating-system command prompt, the directory can be accessed by Domino 6. Directory rules also support Windows UNC paths (for example, server-2pages). However, the server machine must already have the UNC share mapped with the proper level of access; the Domino 6 Web server can use existing UNC mappings but cannot initiate new ones.
