Identify a Missing Feature During a SharePoint Upgrade

If you are upgrading from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 and run into an error when using the Test-SPContentDatabase cmdlet in Powershell, try this quick tip.

Navigate to the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES folder on the SharePoint 2007 box and perform a GREP (search using “look in” files option) for part of the GUID of the missing feature.

This will likely point you to a feature.xml file that has the feature GUID inside it.

Using this file and the containing folder, you should be able to identify what feature is causing your problem.

Here is the original error.

Category        : MissingFeature
Error           : True
UpgradeBlocking : False
Message         : Database [WSS_Content_SharePointRx] has reference(s) to a mis
                  sing feature: Id = [d0944c5e-9a3a-41a0-ab89-6a810e305574].
Remedy          : The feature with Id d0944c5e-9a3a-41a0-ab89-6a810e305574 is r
                  eferenced in the database [WSS_Content_SharePointRx], but is
                  not installed on the current farm. The missing feature may ca
                  use upgrade to fail. Please install any solution which contai
                  ns the feature and restart upgrade if necessary.

You might also find some custom InfoPath form templates that have been installed and activated as a feature.
