SUMMARY How to set up non-root user to run shutdown

I want to allow a non-root user to run /etc/shutdown command.  I am
running Solaris 8 2/2 and the username is the owner with group as

I entered the following:

setfacl -m user:username:5 /etc/shutdown

getfacl /etc/shutdown showed:
user:username:r-x    #effective:r-x
group:r-x                   #effective:r-x

When username runs the /etc/shutdown, it says only root can shutdown.
What am I doing wrong?  Thanks in advance for responses.
