|Platform||Intel i7-5960X||OS||Windows 10 Professional x64||OS Version||16299|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0002720: Logbook: Poor error handling when database opening fails|
|Description||If the Logbook tries to open a database and that database can't be opened, error handling is very poor. This should be cleaned up.|
|Steps To Reproduce||1) Setup a data source on a server in the Logbook; SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, whatever you'd like.|
2) Build a logbook database on it
3) Close the logbook
4) Stop the database server
5) Restart logbook
6) The Logbook, at restart, will try to open that database. It can't, since the server is stopped.
BUG#1) The timeout for opening the database is very long; it doesn't need to be. The user sits around and wonders what's happening.
7) An error appears that the database couldn't be opened.
BUG#2) It's pretty hard to understand and isn't completely accurate; "The data source 'MySQLTest1' does not exist. (#2 - Connect = DSN=MySQLTest1)". The data source actually does exist; it just couldn't be opened.
8) The logbook opens a view associated with that database. It's blank, since the connection failed, but the user doesn't know that. This state is pretty bad, since it implies that their data is gone; and allows them to try to do work against a database that isn't connected.
BUG#3) The view shouldn't be opened.
BUG#4) In this state, the logbook isn't at all stable. Eventually, a background task or user action will try to access the broken database connection and cause a crash.

Addressed with this checkin;
On trying to open a second (MySQL) database, logbook crashed and mini-dump produced.

It doesn't look like the provided dump is related to this change. I've opened 2752 to track it.
I don't think that report should block shipping the beta.
