I have a question, basically when i run Test-SPContentDatabase I get an error "MissingFeature" with an ID.

I used the Feature Admin, this one doesn't give any faulty features or whatever, i checked all the features and i cannot find the feature with this ID.

Then i queried a database for the feature, the database on which i ran this test:

select * from [Features] where (FeatureId ="xxxxx")

But it doesn't give any results, where else do i find a reference and can establish this feature, and which feature this is?

Any idea?

someone created a very simple app for you to use, run it on the server and enter the guid then click the button...

http://featurenamefromid.codeplex.com/

enter image description here

your not going to find it on the database as that is where its missing! it would be on sharepoint. The app will tell you the name....

if you look at the code its very simple!

        SPFarm oFarm = SPFarm.Local;
        var cInfo = new CultureInfo(1033);
        foreach (var oFeatureDev in oFarm.FeatureDefinitions)
        {
            if (oFeatureDev.Id.ToString().ToUpper().Contains(TextBoxFeatureId.Text.ToUpper()))
            listBoxFeatureNames.Items.Add(oFeatureDev.GetTitle(cInfo));

        }

to delete the feature, do:

farm.FeatureDefinitions[listBox1.Items[0].ToString()].Delete();

if you want to make the current app fancy than replace his code with the code below. You just need to add another button and give it the control name of btnDelete

in designer create a new button and call it delete, than give it an id of btnDelete

now double click the button and replace all code within the class with this:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration;
using System.Globalization;

namespace FindFeatureFromId
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        SPFarm oFarm;

        private void Find_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {

            oFarm = SPFarm.Local;
            var cInfo = new CultureInfo(1033);
            foreach (var oFeatureDev in oFarm.FeatureDefinitions)
            {
                if (oFeatureDev.Id.ToString().ToUpper().Contains(TextBoxFeatureId.Text.ToUpper()))
                listBoxFeatureNames.Items.Add(oFeatureDev.GetTitle(cInfo));

            }
        }

        private void btnDelete_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
                var confirmResult =  MessageBox.Show("Do you want to delete this item?",
                        "Confirm Deletion", 
                        MessageBoxButtons.YesNo);
                if (confirmResult == DialogResult.Yes)
                {
                    oFarm.FeatureDefinitions[listBoxFeatureNames.Items[0].ToString()].Delete();
                    oFarm.Update();
                    MessageBox.Show("Item Deleted");
                    listBoxFeatureNames.Items.Remove(listBoxFeatureNames.Items[0]);
                }
        }

    }
}
