Exchange 2010 - transport rule edge or hub?


We have an Exchange 2010 environment that consists of four Exchange servers in a DAG and two Edge transport servers.

When should transport rules be placed on a Hub Transport Server or an Edge Transport Server?

Check this link to better help you understand rules (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124703(v=exchg.141).aspx) but basically hub transport rules are stored in AD so they are used by all hub transport servers in the organization. Edge rules are stored locally on each edge server so they are applied only to messages received by that edge server.

As suggested earlier create rule on any one of the hub transport server. the same will replicate to all hub and edge servers.
