Hi,
which SharePoint version and edition?
What do you try to achieve?
Direct queries using SQL commands against Sharepoint databases are a no-go!
And you should be able to use the commandlets Get-SPWeb / Get-SPSite providing the parameter -Identity and the guid to get the objects. Then you can use the various properties to get the urls.

Save All SiteID in E:\temp\SiteID.txt with each ID on new line and run below script .

Script :
=====================================
$content = Get-Content E:\temp\SiteID.txt
foreach($line in $content)
{
$site = Get-SpSite $line
$site.Url + "," + $site.Id.Guid | out-file E:\temp\SiteUrl.txt -append -width 1000
}
Write-Host "Completed"

Open in new window


===============================
Hope this helps you

I am trying to track down a workflow that is causing issues and I found it in sql against a Nintex Database, but the query in sql does not provide a URL. It only provides the SiteID and WebID. I need the URL to track down the workflow. I have been working with a Microsoft tech on this as well and they are the ones that started me off with queries against the SharePoint database. I can ask the Microsoft tech I am working with for the command line to get this also now that I think of it.

Hi,
OK - I just wanted to explicitely mention, that esp. updating data inside SharePoint database will result in an unsupported environment/farm.

So you should be able to get the url by using:
Get-SPWeb -Site 5953f454-5681-45b8-b2b0-c28a74608e11 | WHERE  {$_.Id -eq "d30d787b-9c5c-4deb-8e05-0a597f1bdf38"} | Select Url, Title

Open in new window


where the first GUID is the Site GUID (id) and the second one the web guid (id).

What you gave me almost worked. It provided me with http://hostname/managed Path/site guid but no site url.

Sorry,
I do not understand your response.

The above command should return the Url of the SPWeb as well as the title - and this worked on my dev environment (SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise).

If you need the url of the SPSite then use:
Get-SPSite -identity 5953f454-5681-45b8-b2b0-c28a74608e11 | Select Url

Open in new window

That was it, thank you! If it makes you feel any better we are not making changes to the database. We are just looking up info.

Hi,
glad that it worked :-D

Thanks for the points and it is not about me - I just do not want that someone is getting into a really really ugly situation where MS support just decline any service due to an unsupported state of the farm (I experienced this once - and trust me - the responsible SharePoint "admin" had to look quickly for a new job). And SharePoint is not only complex but also due to the complexity and flexibility "buggy" - and in some situations only MS support can deeply analyze the root cause.
