I have uninstalled a few features and am now getting an unexpected error when trying to navigating to the "Manage content and structure" page. The ULS logs show the following error:

"The configuration database was queried for a non-existent object with the id 191eae26-0fe6-41c6-86e9-8356bf08d7df. Most commonly, this is caused by removing an SPFeatureDefinition without writing upgrade code to remove references to the feature from each site."

How do I get rid of the error? I can't seem to identify which solution is causing the error. I have

  1. Searched ULS logs for the GUID - can't find any references
  2. ran stsadm -enumsolutions - no references found
  3. run CodePlex Feature Admin - no feature with such GUID exists
  4. ran stsadm -o uninstallfeature -id 191eae26-0fe6-41c6-86e9-8356bf08d7df - no such feature is installed.

Where do i go from here? Any suggestions would be really appreciated...

  • Try adding -force to the STSADM command Apr 10, 2012 at 10:50
  • Adding the -force switch did the trick - the feature was uninstalled. The issue with the "Manage structure and content" page was due to something else though. there were "Detected use of SPRequest for previously closed SPWeb object. " errors getting logged. this turned out to be due to a particular list that wasn't automatically deleted on uninstalling a feature. This post (tylercranston.com/2011/11/… ) helped me to find the erroring list - removing it got rid of all my issues.
