hopefully an easy 500pts for someone.

Is it possible to change the password on an *existing* username without removing/re-creating that user?

eg:
username my user password mypass privilege 2

How would I change this password to MyPassw0rd

Nope, you can't change the password.  You have to remove and then add with new password.

conf t
no username myuser
username myuser password MyPassw0rd privilege 2

That's so dumb.  

It's how I had been doing it, just wondering if that was the best/only way.  Thx.
