STORE objects and remote resources

    This question has been asked so far :
    AE V12 is running on Windows, together with a collection of Windows agents. 
    I intended to test the STORE objects and the ATTACH_RES script instruction. So far it works OK, I can read, cat and modify the contents of a text file. 
    All that environment (AE, agents and loaded file) belong to the same physical environment. 
    I also run Linux agents on VMs under the physical machine. Is it possible to define a linux file or any remote (not next to the AE) as part of the store object.? I haven’t seen so far a parameter which specifies where the file should be uploaded from.

    ==> if you want to use the STORE object then we first need to add resource, and it should be done via UI
    and after that you can use ATTACH_RES with Window or Unix agent (local or remotely)

    Regarding the STORE object, I just want to draw your attention on an interesting information : there is a size limit.

    [...] By default the maximum file size is 71 MB (74448896 bytes). An administrator can reduce it by setting the storage size with the MAXIMUM_STORE_RESOURCE_SIZE key in the UC_SYSTEM_SETTINGS system variable to a lower value. [...]

    there is an older discussion about using a store object:
    https://community.automic.com/discussion/6577/using-the-storage-object

    in my opinion the store object has one big disadvantage - the files in it can only be used by using the real file name - and not by using the store name in combination with :attch_res
    So in my case I can only use the filename 7za.exe or text.txt and not the global name TEXT or 7ZIP_CMDLINE
    which would be more generic.
