Hi,

To create a Forward lookup zone for the said 2 hosts,

Open DNS management console, Right click on the forward lookup zone of your DNS domain, create a new 'A' record. Give the name "ESXI-Host-01" and enter the IP address of the host. Tick on the create a PTR record in the same window, which will create the reverse lookup zone entry.

Do the same for the second host (ESXI-Host-02).

Reconfirm by clicking on the reverse lookup zone to see if a PTR record created for both hosts IP addresses.

(If you haven't created a forward lookup zone for your existing domain, create it, Refer:- https://thesysadminchannel.com/setup-and-configure-dns-reverse-lookup-zones/
