Move Journal rules, Rules, Retention tag and polices.

I am in the process of finishing up my exchange migration move. I had a question about moving the Journal Rules, Rules, Retention Tags and Policies. Is there a command moves these or does automatically get embedded when you spin up a new exchange? I am moving from Exchange 2010 to 2016.

As a rule (see what I did there?), transport rules, retention tags and policies, and journal rules are organization-wide.  You will need to update journaling settings for newly added databases.  If you are decommissioning old 2010 servers, you may need to migrate your Send and Receive connectors from the older servers to new servers, as connectors are tied to a particular server.  Additionally, you may need to update your connectors to include references to the new servers (as in, "which servers can use this connector").  For example, this script ( can be used to help facilitating moving some connectors.
