The DNS Manager administrative tool doesn't seem to have an option for configuring TTL for an individual record. I can set the TTL per-zone by right-clicking -> Properties -> SOA. Where is the equivalent for each record?

In DNS manager, click view-->advanced.

Then open a DNS record. There will be some new fields, including TTL.

Works on server 2008 and 2003.
