How to identify site with custom site definitions

Hi experts,

I ran test-spcontentdatabase against our current 2007 database before attempting an upgrade.  The report indicated that 5 sites have a site definition ID 75820.  

I've identified the two possible site templates that were used to create these 5 sites; both were created by using the "template this site" link in a site's settings.

Is there a way to list the web addresses of those 5 sites so I can identify them for post-upgrade monitoring?

Thanks for your help.

Thanks, Jamie. I don't know how to do that.  I'm a PS novice (I can open it and type commands).  Can you please recommend a resource for learning to script in it?

Thanks,

Hi Nancy,

I did a paid for course on Powershell at Pluralsight Training;

There are plenty of free resources from Microsoft at;

But the powershell referenced above does most or perhaps all you need without further modification.

PowerShell isn't straight forward in 2007.

I'd look into this tool:  http://spm.codeplex.com/releases/view/22762

Thanks to both of you for the pushes in the right direction.  Turned out to not be an issue for the test upgrade, but I will follow up on the PS training.
