This script copies a single receive connector from a source Exchange Server to a single target Exchange server or all other Exchange servers.

The primary purposes of this script are:

  • Simplify migration of legacy Exchange receive connectors (Exchange 2007 or Exchange2010) to a modern Exchange server (Exchange 2013 or Exchange 2016)
  • Simplify receive connector distribution across multiple Exchange servers (Exchange 2013, Exchange 2016, or Exchange 2019)
