my DHCP scope range is to
reserved to for servers
the lease time was 8 hours for ip address, i expanded it to 2 days. Still have duplicate entries in DNS server.

In your DHCP scope options, under the DNS tab ensure you enable  DNS dynamic updates accordingly, Also ensure the discard A and PTR records when lease is deleted is checked.

In DNS ensure scavegging is enable to remove stale records.  But forst do the above.

thank you, All of the above were already selected. In the scavegging option I increased the scavvengin frequency to 1 hour. Let's see what this will do.

Scavenging frequency is still bound by the Aging Intervals. Nothing will be scavenged until a full Refresh has passed if you just enabled it.

Just watch out for Refresh Intervals lower than 24 hours. They can make a real mess of your domain because clients with static IP addresses (your servers and such) only refresh once every 24 hours.
