Restricting a group of users to run only "rndc reload" and "rndc reconfig" via sudo is trivial. sudoers(1) will explain how, and the sudoers file that comes with sudo is chock full of examples. Off the top of my head, you would do something like this: User_Alias DNSOPS = user1, user2, user3 Cmnd_Alias DNSRELOAD = /usr/sbin/rndc reload Cmnd_Alias DNSRECONF = /usr/sbin/rndc reconfig DNSOPS ALL = DNSRELOAD, DNSRECONF Don't know if that parses properly, but you get the idea. As far as editing only zone files, if you know the names of the files that they need to edit, something like this is sufficient: DNSOPS ALL = sudoedit /etc/named.conf DNSOPS ALL = sudoedit /etc/rndc.conf DNSOPS ALL = sudoedit /var/named/zone1 DNSOPS ALL = sudoedit /var/named/zone2 However, if your users need to be able to create/modify/rename files under /var/named (as you mentioned in your OP), then you will need a properly written wrapper script.
