I’ll have to wait till it triggers again to see the name but I’ve had a bot, pretty sure it’s the bing one, create server errors. From what I read the search engine no longer exists but the bot is still crawling and unable to connect to bing server. Anyway to block the specific bot?

Bing = Microsoft exists.

The URL of the sitemap has changed. This is also the error you see in the log.
