Export and Import Transport Rules in Exchange Online

Lets see in a hybrid in Environment. We got to move the transport Rules from On-Premises Server to Office 365. So that transport rules will still work when mail flow hits the cloud for Mail processing.

Export XML file from On premises Server –

$file = Export-TransportRuleCollection
Set-Content -Path "C:\Scripts\Rules.xml" -Value $file.FileData -Encoding Byte

Connect to Exchange Online PowerShell –

$UserCredential = Get-Credential
$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://outlook.office365.com/powershell-liveid/ -Credential $UserCredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $Session

Import XML file to Office 365  –

[Byte[]]$Data = Get-Content -Path "C:\Scripts\Rules.xml" -Encoding Byte -ReadCount 0
Import-TransportRuleCollection -FileData $Data

Note : Import from Exchange 2010 Server is not Supported.  Error : It cannot be used with a engine-based XML File is Datacenter Environment.
