[MissingFeature] Database Message in the Health Analyzer

When migrating from SharePoint 2010 to 2013, you may see errors which look like the following: 

[MissingFeature] Database [Content_Database] has reference(s) to a missing feature: Id = [ec662500-768e-4603-9963-d38f185ded4a]. The feature with Id ec662500-768e-4603-9963-d38f185ded4a is referenced in the database [XXX_WSS_Content_80], but is not installed on the current farm. The missing feature may cause upgrade to fail. Please install any solution which contains the feature and restart upgrade if necessary. 

[MissingAssembly] Assembly [Vizit.Utils, Version=5.1.0.1187, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=f6193dfd5b49167f] is referenced in the database [Content_Database], but is not installed on the current farm. Please install any feature/solution which contains this assembly. One or more assemblies are referenced in the database [Content_Database], but are not installed on the current farm. Please install any feature or solution which contains these assemblies. 

[MissingAssembly] Assembly [Vizit.Utils, Version=5.2.0.1283, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=f6193dfd5b49167f] is referenced in the database [Content_Database], but is not installed on the current farm. Please install any feature/solution which contains this assembly. One or more assemblies are referenced in the database [Content_Database], but are not installed on the current farm. Please install any feature or solution which contains these assemblies.

In most cases, this can be remedied by manually removing the features from the Content Database. Here are blog posts which detail this process.

In some cases, this can be the result of a list created by Vizit called VIZIT_USERS. You can use the following tool to remove the VIZIT_USERS list: http://spm.codeplex.com/
