I have this error in our staging SharePoint farm. I can remove the references, but I'd like to reinstall the feature since we have this feature installed on production.

[MissingFeature] Database [STAGE_Farm_Content_Admin] has reference(s) to a missing feature: Id = [d95c97f3-e528-4da2-ae9f-32b3535fbb59], Name = [Mobile Browser View], Description = [Provide document library and other lists in team site with mobile view for smartphone browsers.], Install Location = [MBrowserRedirect]. The feature with Id d95c97f3-e528-4da2-ae9f-32b3535fbb59 is referenced in the database [STAGE_Farm_Content_Admin], but is not installed on the current farm. The missing feature may cause upgrade to fail. Please install any solution which contains the feature and restart upgrade if necessary.

If I look in '\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\FEATURES' I see the MBrowserRedirect folder with the feature inside.

  • Using powershell Install feature with id = d95c97f3-e528-4da2-ae9f-32b3535fbb59 and use -Force attribute Nov 26, 2014 at 19:48
  • The id didn't work but Install-SPFeature "MBrowserRedirect" -Force worked perfectly. Thank you. If you post an answer I'll accept it.

Using Install-SPFeature cmdlet try to Force install the feature.

The Install-SPFeature cmdlet installs a specific SPFeature by providing, in the Identity parameter, the relative path from the version-specific common FEATURES folder to the feature.
