When the case of the download Uniform Resource Locator (URL) configured by the Enterprise Vault (EV) client extensions in the Vault Cache (VC) Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) job does not match the case of the Proxy Auto-Configuration (PAC) file rule for the requested EV server, then the correct proxy routing will not occur and VC Synchronization may fail.
The following error is logged in the EV client extensions log:
CCJobNotification::JobError - Job Error: 0x0
Job Name is 'EV: 2010-04-01 to 2010-06-30'
No error description available
ERROR - The error was related to the specified remote file. For example, the URL was not accessible.

In EV 8.0 and later VC content is downloaded via a BITS job. BITS connects to the EV server using a URL similar to the example below:
This BITS job can fail because PAC files are case sensitive. Hostnames in a different case to the PAC file rule will not be matched against this rule. As a result the BITS job may fail or be routed incorrectly. In the example below, the BITS job will be routed via a proxy instead of going direct because the server name is in upper case whereas the PAC file rule is in lower case:
BITS Download URL:
PAC File Rule:
shExpMatch (host, "*.symantec.com*")
return "PROXY 192.168.1.1:8080";
The EV client extensions generate the BITS download URL by referring to the ComputerName value within the ComputerEntry table in the EnterpriseVaultDirectory database. Ensure that this value is in lower case and then synchronize all mailboxes via the Synchronization tab in the properties of the relevant Mailbox Archiving Task. Close and reopen Outlook for the changes to take effect.
