First thing to consider us whether the sql server will gave the requisite rights to access the file.

Depending on what you are trying to achieve there might be better/more efficient ways to get to the point you want to end up with.

Are you looking to catalog files and have a searchable index?

A vb/c#/powershell might be a better approach to look at the sql for the files that need to be cataloged.
