Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

To change the password saved on the HWTACACS server, users can run the hwtacacs-user change-password hwtacacs-server command on the device. You do not need to change the configuration on the HWTACACS server.


  • Users are HWTACACS authenticated and the HWTACACS server template is configured.

  • Users can run this command to change the passwords only when the user names and passwords saved on the HWTACACS do not expire. When a user whose password has expired logs in to the device, the HWTACACS server does not allow the user to change the password and displays a message indicating that the authentication fails.

  • The system wait period is 30 seconds. If the TACACS server does not receive the user name, new password, or confirmed password from the user within such a period, it terminates the password change process.

  • Users can also press Ctrl+C to cancel password change.

  • HWTACACS users who pass AAA authentication can use the hwtacacs-user change-password hwtacacs-server command to change the passwords before the passwords expire. If a user needs to run this command to change the passwords of other users, the user must have the system rights.


# Enable the user that passes HWTACACS authentication to change the password.
