sharepoint 2010 upgrade

  Asked By: Tyson    Date: Sep 20    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 1731

I am in the process of planning for an upgrade from SharePoint 2007 to
2010. Problem I am having is that after running the Preupgrade Check on
the MOSS server, I am getting a list of issues that I am not sure how to
deal with. The message back is:

Failed : Content database with modified database schemas

User modifications to the SharePoint content database, including but not
limited to table schemas, index, stored procedures, are not supported
and will cause upgrade to future versions of SharePoint to fail. The
databases in the following list seem to have been modified from the
original schema:

* Data Source=cosql13;Initial Catalog=wss_content_as;Integrated
Security=True;Enlist=False;Connect Timeout=15

I understand that it is reporting that the schema has changed, but I am
not sure how or what modified it. Moreover, how do I fix it? Any
guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I've seen that error pop up a couple of times during a preupgradecheck.
It hasn't ever stopped the database from upgrading. I have my suspicions
that my cases it was caused by a third party application that was
installed. I say attach it and see what happens.

I did do the attach and it appeared to
attach ok, but when I look in the log file, it says:

Feature could not be upgraded. Exception: Feature definition id
'5d36c9f0-7b77-4a99-9b98-a1fd5ac11813' could not be found.

I too am guessing that this is something that was installed on the
server, but how do I track down what it is? Also, as long as I don't do
the visual upgrade, all appears to be working, but as soon as I do the
visual upgrade, subsites begin to break. Any ideas? Anyone?

Is your existing SharePoint site fully updated with service packs and cumulative
Your database server must also be fully patched.
