comment Why does transaction log continue to grow in Simple recovery mode with nightly backups
@DerekCate "I don't think we're doing anything that would require 300MB of log"... You'd be surprised, it doesn't take much to bind up the reuse of the transaction log. Don't think of it in terms of quantity of workload, as that's not always the cause.

comment Looking for a utility to move data between databases (prod to dev) SQL Server 2012
SSIS would still get my vote. You could always write your own script (with PowerShell, for example) but that's more work than necessary. That's a very simple task with SSIS.

comment Slow query execution using ODBC 32
If you are able to, feel free to put the output into your question for further review (most notably the query plan XML and the set_options attribute value).

comment Slow query execution using ODBC 32
My guess is that you're dealing with two different plans, perhaps caused by different statement set options. Here is a discovery query to look at the plans and other related information to get you started in the right direction: select * from sys.dm_exec_cached_plans cp cross apply sys.dm_exec_query_plan(cp.plan_handle) qp cross apply sys.dm_exec_sql_text(cp.plan_handle) st cross apply sys.dm_exec_plan_attributes(cp.plan_handle) pa where st.text not like '%dm_exec_cached_plans%' and st.text like '%VR_ISE_d3_Adressen%' and pa.attribute = 'set_options';
