Fix “Missing Web Parts” issue in SharePoint Migration

In MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010 migration, got this Preupgradecheck issue: The following web part(s) are referenced by the content, but they are not installed on the web server

Solution: Enumerate all web parts and find the missing ones. Remove the faulty web part from the referenced pages. To enumerate all web parts, Run this STSADM command line:

stsadm.exe -o enumallwebs -includewebparts

enumallwebs includewebpart

Open the report it generated, search for “Missing”

The following web part(s) are referenced by the content, but they are not installed on the web server

Open the referred pages in Web Part Maintenance mode (append “?contents=1” to the end of URL. E.g. http://sharepoint.company.com/sites/sales/reports.aspx?contents=1) and delete those faulty web parts!

You must have October CU for this command line to work!!!
