Delegating the Administration of BIND

It sounds like you need a commercial solution for administering BIND.. We use Men And Mice ( and it works very well for us.

I'm looking for a way to make BIND administration easier for IT staff.

I've recently downloaded webmin/b9ddns and installed on a test server.
Unless I'm missing something, there's no granularity in that software
to allow only adding / deleting of zone entries.

I'd rather have 3 types of privs that go something like this:

   1.  Add remove zone entries (A/MX/CNAME & PTR, etc), and reload those zones
   2.  Create/delete zones
   3.  Administer BIND (Stop/Start server)

A bonus would be the ability to limit certain zones to certain users.

Any ideas?
