  1. What about Normal Site Content Crawling?
    I am facing issue like :
    Unpublished Site URLs are being searched.
    Content Course contains auth site URL.
    When i change it to anonymous it gives me Access denied Error.
    Checked permissions for crawl account.
    Checked DisableLoopBackCheck in Regedit.
