How do I make a cutout on a curved surface in SolidEdge V18?

I'm making a model of a plummer block using SolidEdge V18 (model attached). When I try to create a circular cutout of 6mm depth on the curved surface, the surface cannot be selected like other plane surfaces. So I tried going to 'Sketch' & drew a circle on the curved surface. Then I selected the circle after clickind on the 'Normal cutout' option. The software gives an error that the selected curve does not lie on the model surface.

What should I do? Thanks in advance.
