I want to add a user with 'shutting down/poweroff' authorization RBAC. I got this entry in /etc/secutiry/auth_attr

bash-3.00# grep shutdown /etc/security/auth_attr
solaris.system.shutdown:::Shutdown the System::help=SysShutdown.html

I did 'usermod -A solaris.system.shutdown username

but still I am not able to poweroff the system using command /usr/sbin/poweroff
I am getting permission denied error.

Kindly suggest how can I use the predefined auth.
