Find IDs for default templates, features, and content types in Office SharePoint Server 2007 or Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 so you can identify them in your environment before upgrade.
The pre-upgrade checker returns a list of all site definitions, site templates, features, and language packs that are installed in the farm. Although the report lists the IDs for these elements, it might be difficult to identify an ID that maps to a specific named template or feature. Likewise, when you create an inventory of your environment to prepare for upgrade, you can easily get the IDs for these elements, but you might have problems mapping them to the names.
The attached worksheet contains the IDs for the following elements in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0:
Site Template IDs
Content Type IDs
List Template IDs
