Search Server is configured with specific Windows credentials upon which many of its components are dependent. If the password for the account associated with your Search Server instance should require a change (or if you want to change this account entirely), the dependent components must also be updated.

When an 8.5 search server is upgraded to 8.6 (using EktronSearchConfiguration.exe), assets may not be transferred to the search server for indexing during a crawl.
Search Server has a configurable tolerance for errors that it encounters during a crawl (a "delete" is technically an error: Object not found). If you think about traditional web crawling, this makes sense as you never know when a site may just be down temporarily. You would not necessarily want to remove all content from your index just because the crawl coincided with a temporary network outage or something like that. In our system though we tend to know exactly when data should be removed. For that reason, we typically configure Search Server to set these tolerance levels to 0.
When troubleshooting search results issues, a SharePoint Search Server search site allows you to check if items are being indexed.
For recursive searches (through subfolders), use the SearchContentProperty.FolderIdPath property with a ContainsExpression. Example: SearchContentProperty.FolderIdPath.Contains(cmsfolderidpath) //trim the leading /0/ (if any) in your CMS folder path. For non-recursive searches, use SearchContentProperty.FolderId property.For a more in-depth discussion on this concept please see this blog post below.Recursive Folder Queries
The components in the Search Server infrastructure use various ports for communication. These ports must be opened to permit normal search operation.

In a simplistic scenario, a keyword query executed against one's search index returns results where the body of a result item contains data relevant to the specified keywords.
Often this data is also applied when the search provider dynamically generates a summary for a result.
When the search provider for a CMS site is Microsoft's FAST Search for SharePoint 2010, some string refinements containing special characters can result in a malformed query error when applied to search criteria.
