"HCW8010 Default Receive Connector cannot be found on server" error when you run the Hybrid Configuration wizard

PROBLEM
When you run the Hybrid Configuration wizard, you receive the following error message:
HCW8010 Default Receive Connector cannot be found on server <ServerName>.
CAUSE
If you have a Receive connector set up in your environment, this issue typically occurs if IP version 6 (IPv6) is disabled on a server.
SOLUTION
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Enable IPv6 on the Exchange servers in your environment. For more information about how to do this, see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
    929852 How to disable IPv6 or its components in Windows
  2. Add the IPv6 binding to the Receive connector. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Open the Exchange Management Shell.
    2. Run the following command to identify the default Receive connector that's using port 25: 
      Get-ReceiveConnector –Server <ServerName> | Where {$_.Bindings –match ‘25’}
    3. Run the following commands to update the Receive connector:
      $rc = Get-ReceiveConnector “<ServerName>\Default Frontend <ServerName>”
      $rc.Bindings += "[::]:25"
      Set-ReceiveConnector $rc -Bindings $rc.Bindings
