SharePoint 2010 Search

SharePoint 2010 Edition comparison

Problem: Setup search securely from scratch
Initial Hypothesis: The setup wizard is not precise enough so it is a better idea to setup search using Powershell or even by creating a new Search Service Application using the UI.  The crawl account used by your Search Service Application can be seen under the "Default content access account" property.
When you create the new Search Service application you loose your existing search data such as indexing, scopes and search settings.
Corey Roth has a good post on permissions for the crawl account.

Security Trimming: Search only returns the results the current user has access to in SharePoint.  File servers work the same way.  Any outside content source you crawl using a specified account will not have security permissions and therefore will show all results.
