SharePoint broken links reporting tool

If you’ve ever had to move SharePoint content around, you know how painful it can be to locate and correct hyperlinks that have become invalid.  James Milne has a beta tool called SPStatus that is great for easing this task.  Check it out here:

SPUserUtil is a “must have” for any SharePoint administrator

If you’re a SharePoint 2003 administrator and you have not added SPUserUtil to your toolbox, you have got to get this one!  It was updated to version 2.1 in April of last year and if you still don’t have it… get it!  More detail can be found on Keith Richie’s blog located here:

SharePoint Orphaned Sites

If you’ve ever attempted to do a STSADM -o restore and the process got interrupted, then you KNOW what I’m talking about.  When this happens and site data is not properly synchronized between the config and content databases, things get a little rough especially since you can’t restart the restore due to this state of the database.
 
According to a post by Keith Richie, there is some hope.  Part II can be found here.  In some cases, depending on the type of orphaned mismatch you have, the problem can be resolved by reattaching the content database.  In the case where you have content data but not config data though, which seems to be the case most of the time, there are few options available.  And if you’re thinking of just cleaning up the records yourself, for pity’s sake DON’T!!!
I REPEAT!  DO NOT DIRECTLY UPDATE YOUR SHAREPOINT DATABASES!  STEP AWAY FROM THE KEYBOARD!
