You can create legacy connector between exchange2003 & 2010 by using following cmdlet using exchange powershell

New-RoutingGroupConnector -Name "Interop RGC" -SourceTransportServers "Ex2010Hub1.contoso.com" -TargetTransportServers "Ex2003BH1.contoso.com" -Cost 10 -Bidirectional $true -PublicFolderReferralsEnabled $true

New-RoutingGroupConnector = to create new Routing Connector
-Name "Interop RGC" = this is the name of connector can be defined as your own
-SourceTransportServers = source server i.e. your exchange2010 FQDN
-TargetTransportServers = Target Server i.e. your exchange2003 FQDN
-Cost 10 = The Cost parameter specifies a cost to the connector
-Bidirectional $true = both side communication is enable yes
-PublicFolderReferralsEnabled $true = Public folderreals enabled yes

ok thanks,

so another question arises why would one need to create this connector/s when by default it creates one when you install first hub transport server in exchange 2010?

sorry for the basics just trying to understand the reasons/needed for this...

cheers

yes its created by default when we install  first exchange2010 and no need to create it manually. I just answered your query as you want to know.

There could be many reasons for it for example Suppose if we had done our migration and remove this connector and  but suddenly you release there are something missing then you may need to create this one again.
