Can I use UNCs in my map configuration file?
Yes. UNC (universal naming convention) pathnames instead of mapped drives can be used in map configuration files; UNC is the \\ part of a Windows network pathname.
You cannot use UNC pathnames in the Open Project dialog box (ArcIMS Author and ArcExplorer—Java edition) or the New MapService dialog box (ArcIMS Administrator and ArcIMS Manager).
Using UNCs may result in slower performance.
