in Exchange 2010 the Send connector is configured atthe Hub Transport under exchange organization, but the receive connectore is configure on one of the  exchange servers under Server configuration.

What s the reason behind that.?

simply because the receive connector is per hub i.e. each hub has its own receive connectors while a send connector affects the whole organization, when you create a send connector all the organization should be aware of it and its configuration so that all exchange servers know how to route emails

which config is replicated between Hubs regarding connectors; Send connector config or Receive connector config; in case of one Hub fails.

all exchange config is stored in active directory however receive connector config concerns only the hub server the connector is created on whereas the send connector affects the mail routing of the all the hub servers in the org

if you have more than one no, however if you have only one hub it failing means you will have no mail flow

even with 2 hubs, the send connectors wouldn't be configured the same

oops, meant receive connectors, the ones that are configured per hub server, not at the organization level.

ok posts crossed,

if you have more than one hub server it is your responsability to configure the receive connectors in a way to acheive redundancy
