You will need priviliged level access to change the configuration.

Whoever assigned you the username/password will need to either raise your priviledge level or add config mode to your current priviledge level.

If it is using TACACs then it is not stored on the router and you don't need to have config mode. You need to talk to the administrator of the TACACs server to find out how to change your password.

Experts correct me if i am wrong.

On logging in, the device throws up the TACACS user name prompt. If you enter the username and hit enter WITHOUT entering the password, the system should prompt you to change the password? You just enter the old password and then the new password twice.

Hope this helps.
