DNS - New VLAN does not have Reverse Lookup Zone. Error when manually creating A Record

We have a number of VLANs that under DNS management of 2003 show up as Reverse lookup Zones by their respective subnet (ex. 10.0.10.x, 10.0.20.x, etc.).

We have on subnet (10.0.50.x) that currently holds only 1 UNIX host, thus I assume why there is no Reverse Lookup Zone created for it.

When I try to create a new "A" record under the Forward Lookup Zone the box is ticked to create a PTR record and it gives me the error:


"The associated pointer (PTR) record cannot be created, probably because teh referenced reverse lookup zone cannot be found".

Either untick the box or create a reverse lookup zone for that IP range?

Am I able to just go in and right-click create new primary zone and add it?
