The BackConnectionHostNames registry key does not exist

The registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\MSV1_0
\BackConnectionHostNames does not exist. To resolve this issue, open Registry Editor, and then locate and click
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\MSV1_0\. Right-click MSV1_0, point to New, and
then click Multi-String Value. Type BackConnectionHostNames, and then press ENTER. Right-click the
BackConnectionHostNames key, and then click Modify. In the Value data box, add the names "companyweb" and
"remote.companyname.co.uk" (do not include the quotation marks), and then click OK. Exit Registry Editor and then
restart the IISAdmin service. For more information see the Knowledge Base article "Errors when crawling content
