Accessing Enterprise vault archived emails through UAG
Recently worked on a case where issue was that users could not access Enterprise vault archived emails through OWA Published through UAG. Enterprise vault is email archiving software from Symantec and is used as add on with OWA to access archived emails.

Scenario: Admin has configured UAG to publish OWA through it. He was also trying to publish enterprise vault through UAG to access archived emails along with OWA. But archived emails were not showing up properly, the image hyperlinks for
that were not working and archived emails were inaccessible.
Troubleshooting Approach and Resolution
“A request from source IP address x.x.x.x, user test2 on trunk portal; Secure=1 for application Exchange 2010 OWA of type ExchangePub2010 failed. The URL
/owa/EnterpriseVault/Exch2010/v184.108.40.2063/scripts/xyz.js contains an illegal path. The rule applied is Default rule. The method is GET.”
i.e. path /enterprisevault/.* was not correct , As the request in the web monitor log had path as “
Therefore we needed to add /owa before /enterprisevault/.*

/owa/EnterpriseVault/ is received by UAG.
