Problems with front-end Exchange 2003 server and OMA

We've recently upgraded our organization to use a front-end Exchange 2003
server running on Windows 2000 and although OWA access works fine, we're
running into some problems getting OMA to work.  The front-end Exchange 2003
server was upgraded from Exchange 2000 but the back-end server was a fresh
install of Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003 server.  The configuration of the
front-end server uses SSL on both the Exchange and OMA directories and both
directories are configured for basic authentication.  Although I've read
that having SSL enabled on these directories could lead to connectivity
problems, the article I read mentioned that SSL should be fine for front-end
servers.  The back-end server does not have SSL enabled on either the
Exchange or OMA directory.

When I attempt to connect via a browser to https://<mail server name>/OMA, I
receive the error "There is a configuration issue with Outlook(R) Mobile
Access.  Please contact your administrator".  On the front-end server's
application event log, a MSExchangeOMA error 1511 error is logged and it

  "Reading the Internet Information Services metabase for the Microsoft(R)
Exchange default domain at node /LM/W3SVC/1/root/OMA failed with
error -2147024891

From other posts I've gone through, I'm lead to believe this is error
equates to an "access denied" error.  However, I'm not exactly certain which
rights need to be set and where to get rid of this error.  I've already
attempted running "aspnet_regiis.exe -i" and this has not fixed the problem.

I set up a similar configuration in one of our labs and got it to work
without any problems.  The only difference between the lab and production
environment is that in the lab, both servers were running Windows 2003
server, and the front-end server was upgraded from Windows 2000 Server.
Unfortunately, due to licensing restrictions, I can not upgrade the
production front-end server to Windows 2003 just yet.  Would this difference
in server configuration account for the problems I'm seeing?  Since I do not
have an exact time frame on when I can upgrade the Windows 2000 server, I
would like to get OMA working with the existing configuration.  Any help
provided would be greatly appreciated.

Making End User Recovery Work
I've seen a lot of people commenting how EUR never works for them. It does work for me after a lot of fiddling, and here are some brief comments that might help: 1.

For DPM2010 it can be found at: \\dpmserver\c$\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\End User Recovery\DPMADSchemaExtension.exe For DPM2007 I believe it's at: \\dpmserver\c$\Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM\End User Recovery\DPMADSchemaExtension.exe Remember, run this on your...
