Can anyone tell me how the on-premises Exchange receive connectors that are created when running the HCW are updated with new IP's when Microsoft changes the IP addresses for Exchange Online/EOP? The only reference I could find is this one which seems to indicate that this must be updated manually at regular intervals (it includes a script to create a task schedule as well).

Hi Dan,

 

When you ran HCW, it will create the receive connector only on the first time you run it.

 

The better way has you describes, is to do a schedule task to update IP's in a regular basis.
