Deletion of Orphan sites RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I need help in deleting Orphan sites. I noticed couple of sites appearing under the SiteCollection list of the respective Webapplication but when i try to get the details, i am seeing a blank screen.

    Also when i am trying to access the URL in IE,i am receiving HTTP 400</id><//id> error instead of HTTP 404 error. Tried with different ways mentioned below but no luck.</id><//id>

    1) stsadm -o deletesite -force -siteid  <SiteID> -databasename <Content DB Name> -databaseserver <DB Server Name>. I got the SiteID of the targeted Orphan site with the help of SPMANAGER 2007 tool.

    2) Stsadm -o databaserepair -url http://<URL_of_WindowsSharePointServices_Site> -databasename <name of database that contains the orphan item>

    Can some one help me out on how to go about and accomplish this.. Thank You
