I searched and didn't see this discussed. I currently have a shared network folder where all plugins, fuses, etc., go. It looks like Reactor is geared towards local installations. Is there a way to point it to a UNC path instead?

PathMaps are the "Fusion" native way to provide flexible installation and shared resource based filepaths that work seamlessly across Mac/Windows/Linux workstations and render node systems.
Reactor allows you to use an environment variable called
REACTOR_INSTALL_PATHMAPto define a custom installation location for the
Reactor:PathMap value that is used to store the Reactor "core" files and the downloaded atoms. You can point this
REACTOR_INSTALL_PATHMAPenvironment variable at a network drive that is on a mounted Windows share location if you want.
This approach is described in the Reactor Docs in the
Creating-Environment-Variables.mdhelp file. You either install the ReactorDocs atom package locally to see these notes, or read the same help content on the Reactor GitLab page here:

Installing-Reactor.mdhelp file also has a topics "Using Reactor Content on a Fusion Render Node" that can provide answers to your questions:
