Receive Connector role not selectable in Exchange 2016 CU2

This posting is ~7 years years old. You should keep this in mind. IT is a short living business. This information might be outdated.

Another bug in Exchange 2016 CU2. The Role of a new receive connector is greyed out. You can select “Front-End-Transport”. This is a screenshot from a german Exchange 2016 CU2.

Use the Exchange Management Shell to create a new receive connector. Afterwards, you can modify it with the Exchange Control Panel (ECP).

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>New-Receiveconnector -Name "Client Frontend Dummy" -RemoteIPRange ("") -TransportRo
le "FrontendTransport" -Bindings ("") -usage "Custom" -Server "exchange1"

Identity                                Bindings                                Enabled
--------                                --------                                -------
EXCHANGE1\Client Frontend Dummy         {}                            True

Microsoft has confirmed, that this is a bug in Exchange 2016 CU2.
