SP Features and Solutions Cleanup
We have a couple of MOSS 2007 farms, one development and one production. Over time we have installed various features at a site collection level, as well as various solutions deployed at a web application level. Some of these are good, and have been promoted and used in production. Some are not so good, and have not made it into production, but have stayed on the development platform. I’d like to do some cleanup of the development platform, and am looking for a best practice approach. In doing this, I’d like to get rid of as much as possible on our termination list, but I also don’t want to break existing sites by removing something that’s being used. I’ve done some exploring in both the configuration and content databases, but so far I haven’t found the information I’m looking for. I also haven’t found a good schema description for the databases; the one I found in MSDN seems to be for SharePoint 11. Any suggestions or links to helpful articles would be appreciated. Thanks, Jim

The best answer I have so far is from a coworker, who suggested running stsadm -o enumallwebs -includefeatures - includewebparts > somefile.xml. The results in somefile can then be examined with IE. Hope this might help someone who might pass this way in the future. Jim
