When I installed the Vault Extensions for OWA2003 on the exchange server this error came up when trying to configure the public folders.

You can open the archived mails in public folders and the link to the original mail works, but there are no buttons to retrieve or archive an item in a public folder.
I tried the solution in the technote, but this did still gives the ado connection error.
On the Symantec Support site and in the Symantec forums, I found this solution.
C:\Program Files\Enterprise Vault\OWA>cscript.exe BackEnd2003Setup.wsf /formregdomain:<mysmtpdomain.tld>
This ran fine, but the effect was less.
You couldn’t retrieve the original of the archived mail in public folders anymore.
This error was shown in a webpage when trying to open the archived mail
Reason: Unable to determine a web app url for vault access
Luckily, the archived mails in the users mailbox were still ok.
