I hope someone can give me help to resolve the following issues.

We have built a new exchange server 2003 std. I have mailed all the ailboxes from old exchange server 2003 std to the new.  The old exchage server is also a DC, that is the part of reason we need to get rid of this server.

However I have found following problems after I use the new exchange server.
1)The log file on  c:\problem\exchsrvr\mdbdata are growing very fast. Even I did full backup every night. It eat the c: very quicly.

2)When I shut off the old exchange server, the user can not view the group schedule from outlook and show the no information (all gray out) . This group schedule was created on old exchange server. However, I create a new group schedule, and show me the same problem no information. What I miss to transfer from old exchange server to the new one?

Thank you very much in advance.

Have you replicated all of the public and system folders to the new machine? If not then you need to. You need to follow the guide here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=822931

On your first question, it is impossible to answer. Exchange logs everything that goes on. When you move mailboxes it generates a lot of logs. Logs are then generated when anything happens. Whether that is a high number of logs depends on many factors, including the number of users and how many emails they send.
