SharePoint 2007 to 2010 Upgrade - Orphaned Site Collection

The pre-upgrade check discovered one orphaned site collection that I cannot resolve…

/personal/site_name (Data Source=PR-DB-004;Initial Catalog=MySite_Content;Integrated Security=True;Enlist=False;Connect Timeout=45)

We have successfully deleted the SiteID using the stsadm -o deletesite method making the enumallwebs report clean without any InSiteMap="False” records.  The pre-upgrade check still has the orphaned site collection so we executed the databaserepair command but the results are zero orphaned records.  The only discrepancy that I can find is the pre-upgrade check message references one content database “MySite_Content” and central admin site collection list references another content “MySiteContent”.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

You could look at the objects table in the config database, and remove it from there.  This isn't supported by Microsoft though.

I queried the object table in the Config database and the only reference to the site was a valid reference.  Used the below query…

SELECT [Id]
      ,[ClassId]
      ,[ParentId]
      ,[Name]
      ,[Status]
      ,[Version]
      ,[Properties]
  FROM [SharePointSites_Config].[dbo].[Objects] (NOLOCK)
  WHERE [Name] LIKE '%/personal/<site_name>%'
      OR [Properties] LIKE '%/personal/<site_name>%'

I still do not understand why the site collection list would display a different content database then the pre-check upgrade message.   Both the content databases are valid and tied to the web application.

Any other thoughts?

Thanks again.

I would look for an object in the config db with the name of the bogus content db.

Either way, this won't stop your upgrade.

We resolved the issue by emptying the recycle bin on all the web applications and rerunning the pre-upgrade checker.
