cloginrc issue need to change password only on routers

Iím new to Linux and Rancid and also taking over for the only network analyst who left the company.

I would like to know in the cloginrc file we have just one username and password created with a wild card, itís the same as username and password used for all our routers.

Iíve been asked to change passwords only not the login usernameon the 40 switches/routers one by one. Iíve only changed the password on the first router and when I did we recíd an error that the router hasnít check back in for over 24 hours.

This is the cloginrc file

add user * t1ger!!
add password * t1ony!!

Any help would be appreciated it will take me about 2 weeks to change all the passwords on our devices.
