AddAttachments GP Tool Not Working for SDE Feature Classes

I am having trouble getting the AddAttachments GP Tool to work with SDE feature classes. The tool works nicely with the same feature class in a file geodatabase.

Its not failing per se just returning messages like:

Cannot add file 'x'

1) I am using the same Input dataset and Match table with the OBJECT ID as the key
2) the Path field is a UNC Path. I tried converting the UNC to a mapped drive....no dice.
3) These files exist on disk.
4) I have tried running the tool within an edit session via arcpy and the da module. Doesn't work either.
5) Its not a privilege issue, I can load the attachments manually in ArcMap  (1 @ a time).
6) The attachment table is registered as versioned.
7) Local 10.1 Desktop client with a direct connect to a 10.0 geodatabase (SS 2008 R2).

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
