Create a role for enrolling hosts and add the privilege 'Host
Enrollment' to it.

Note that 'Host Enrollment' is VERY specific. It only enrolls host. It
will not create host entries. If you want to be able to do that as well
then you'll need the 'Add Hosts' permission. I guess I'd create a new
privilege and add that permission, then add that privilege to the role
you create.

Some folks add the existing 'Host Administrators' privilege instead but
IMHO that is a bit broad.
