I have a site on localhost:81 and extended it to localhost:82. I'm able to crawl the 81 but i'm unable to crawl the 82.

Can we crawl an extended site in SharePoint?

An extended web application points to the exact same database as the web application it is extending. Why do you want to crawl the same data twice? – CodeThug Apr 6 '11 at 4:38

The extended site should be already considered if SP is crawling the default site, like djeeg mentioned. An extended site, in most cases, is just an alternate method to access the same data, so it wouldn't need to be indexed separately.

What results are you seeing?

i am able to see the search results correctly in both the sites . thing is i have crawled only the localhost:81 . – Nikhil Jangle Jan 27 '11 at 5:20

SharePoint crawls the default zone. If you want it to crawl the extended web application (82), make it the default zone.
