DHCP Scope in Windows 2012

DHCP ScopeHi,
   The screenshot above is from SBS2003 installation.
 In SBS2011, is it necessary to check the boxes for "Enable DNS dynamic updates according to the settings below" & "Discard A and PTR records when lease is deleted"?
 Currently I am setting up DHCP in SBS2011 and both checkboxes are empty.
  What are those options for and should I make the settings of SBS2011 same as 2003?

SBS 2011 Standard doesn't require you to set up DHCP. The wizard does this out of the box and it is *recommended* to leave the settings at their default unless you are doing an advanced scenario. And if you *were* doing an advanced scenario then you'd know whether you needed those settings already.

Covering the inticracies of dynamic DHCP updates and record scavenging can be a rather long subject (it usually is a full chapter in most books) and thus can't really be summarized in a small comment-style forum such as EE.

You are correct. I checked another SBS2011 site and no checkbox was checked.
