Last time me and my collegue saw at a certain moment on a lot of sharepoint environment this error in the eventviewer:
"Access is denied. Check that the Default Content Access Account has access to this content, or add a crawl rule to crawl this content"
The result was that the searchengine couldn’t crawl through the sharepoint sites. We found this strange because we even modified are content access account into domain admins, no luck.
After searching google for a long time we found the solution on http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/896861
