SharePoint Tip of the Day – Ensure that the search crawler account that you are using is not a regular site collection user account !

Quick reminder because it took us a long time to figure it out, if you specify a limited (ie : reader member) account as the search crawler foolishly thinking like me that it would prevent the crawling of unaccessible page (admin page, anything unavailable thanks to the viewformpagelockdown, …) then stop doing so ! Any account specified as the search crawler account will be farm admin privileges (at least on the site collection crawled). That’s definitively not something you want to grant to your end-users 🙂

We never stop learning in SharePoint !
