exchange 2010 logs filling up

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%

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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?
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
SP1 isn't lite!  It looks like a comelette install but that quite normal.  Lots of pre-requisites though :(
Sid_FAuthor Commented:
Thanks, are these pre req's outside of server 2008 latest sp?
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
Yes - and when you have installed one - it tells you about another one you need!
