DNS OCSPOOL - Unable To Add

I am trying to create : a host record for our Pool (ocspool."domain")

I tried adding it in Forward Lookup Zone, in 'domain' zone ... but get error:

Warning: the associated pointer (PTR) record cannot be created, probably because the referenced reverse lookup zone cannot be found.

Hi,

This error states that, you do not have the zone in reverse lookup for the IP address specified.
Create the reverse zone for the IP addres and recreate the record for OCSPOOL.

How to Create a Reverse Lookup Zone
To create a new reverse lookup zone:
Start the DNS snap-in.
Click the DNS Server object for your server in the left pane of the console, and then expand the server object to expand the tree.
Expand Reverse Lookup Zones.
Right-click Reverse Lookup Zones, and then click New Zone. The New Zone Wizard starts. Click Next to continue.
Click Primary zone, and then click Next.
In the Network ID box, type the network ID. For example, type 192.168.0, and then click Next.

NOTE: The network ID is that portion of the TCP/IP address that pertains to the network. For additional information about TCP/IP networks, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
164015  Understanding TCP/IP Addressing and Subnetting Basics
On the Zone File page, click Next
Click Next.
Click Finish.
