You generally can't change the configuration of a server at this level
without root level access. Even if you had write access to
/var/unbound/forward.conf, you'ld need also need root level access in
order to signal the unbound process to re-read its config.
This is a job for sudo(8) -- if not, then you're going to have to
explain to your management that whatever they want investigated will
take very much longer than it needs to, since you'll be spending a large
amount of time waiting for some sysadmin to make these changes on your
