Could someone explain quickly the best way to recover a deleted exchange connector in Exchange 2016?  We recovered it from AD but it didn't work.  This is for a VP pretty high importance.

I usually just rebuild them. It's usually quicker than any recovery technique. Unless you have a load of IP addresses that need to be entered in, receive connectors are easy to rebuild.

I would just rebuild it but I don't know the IP addresses that happened to be included on it. (It was for servers, printers and service accounts etc.)

Are the IP addresses kept in any kind of log file or anything that I could recover or easily look in?

I already tried recovering the AD object but it is now corrupt and won't open.

Can you view the properties of the AD object in ADSIEdit? Even if it doesn't work, it should still have the list of IPs and whatnot.

From the restored AD object that info was lost and corrupt, but I was just able to fire up a backup of a DC and was able to open ADSI and find that info!

Thanks for the quick help!
