Allow IT staff to add records to AD DNS servers (not domain admins)

HI

We would like the ability for our network staff to add A and PTR records to our AD integrated DNS zones, however we do not want to grant them domain admin rights

We have 5 DNS servers all running on windows 2008R2 domain controllers

What is the best way of doing this

Thanks

You can assign the permision to users/groups to from DNS console see this:

I will not recommend normal users to perform this activity for security reasons.But if there is strong business requirement then you have no choice.In addition I will recommend to enable auditing to track the activities.
