asked on

Same Receive Connector on two different servers?

I have acquired temporary role of managing two Exchange 2010 servers. I understand most of the basics but one thing I'm not sure on is Receive Connectors.

Both the Exchange 2010 servers under Server Configuration > Hub Transport appear to have a couple of matching Receive Connector entries.

They are literally called the same thing with the same FQDN.

Would that be causing a conflict? Should each hub transport server have unique receive connectors? I don't show any errors or warnings about this, so it seems to allow it.

Ok thanks I just wanted to be sure.    
From https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/Aa996395(v=exchg.141).aspx I'd read:

Receive connectors are scoped to a single server and determine how that specific server listens for connections.

So I wasn't sure if that meant I could only have the receive connector on a single server or not.

Would it be a problem you think to just copy the receive connectors to all Exchange servers?

There is a powershell here that helps do it.
