Migration from exchange 2003 to 2010 done by another user. Now exchange logs are filling up the drive rapidly. Run a backup but makes no difference. Ran exchange user monitor but nothing is standing out. Server 2008. About to install sp1 as rpc requests running at 100%

Have you configured the backup correctly?  Please have a read of the following article for guidance about the VSS settings:

Make sure in your backup you are doing a full exchange backup and committing and flushing the logs

I will check this now.Having trouble getting the sp1 update on. I downloaded the update but it seems to run just a full install of exchange and doesn't mention sp1?

SP1 isn't lite!  It looks like a comelette install but that quite normal.  Lots of pre-requisites though :(
