  • Managing multiple receive connectos

    Hi,
    There are a couple Exchange 2010 edge transport servers in my organization. All of them have a dedicated receive connector configured for mail relay. Connections to these receive connectors are restricted based on IP. More exactly, only IPs registered in "Receive mail from remote servers that have these IP addresses" are allowed to connect.

    Unfortunately the list of allowed hosts is growing and it is difficult to keep them up to date on all serves.

    Is there a centralized way to manage this issue? More exactly to manage the list in one please and it is replicated to all my edge servers configured for relay?

    Thanks.
    Csaba

    Receive Connectors are on a per server basis, so are unique. The only way that I can think of would be to use scripts to update the list so that when a change is made the script applies it to all servers.

      Thanks for your advice.
      Yes, it seems that scripting is the only way to do this.

      A good starting point to build a power shell script is
      http://exchangeserverpro.com/how-to-...ive-connectors

      The main steps are:
      1. Deliver (copy) the text file with the allowed IPs to all designed hub / edge transport servers;
      2. Open a remote power shell connection to these servers;
      3. Run the script.
