Thumbs up Resetting user's password in cluster

Once you are logged in to the cluster, type the command

passwd

and respond to the prompts by entering your old password and your new password.
If you have forgotten your old password, contact administrators.

Yea, but it is not allowing me to change it, I get a warning message like below:
(sol is the name of the computer cluster)

Password change is not allowed here
Please login to sol-main and change your password
eg: ssh sol-main
passwd anilth
or contact sol admin to have password changed

So what is your problem? It is written explicitly: login to sol-main and change your password (or contact your admin)
