Admin password lost

Hello people,

I lost the admin password, I configured during the installation. What is the procedure to recovery this password ?

I want to modify the link mentionned in the mail sending when a new document is uploaded. How can I do it please ?

Thanks a lot !

I'm having such problem too.

How can i give admin permission to another account? Or another way to solve this problem.

Best regards, Belashoff Andrey.

and add users to section "AdminUsers", after restarting Alfresco Server i cannot log in with it.

After login attempt i remove it from file, and login is successfully.

The wiki entry:

http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Security_and_Authentication#How_to_reset_the_admin_password

would appear to be out of date. Adding the property to authority-services-context.xml no longer works. Does anyone have a workable solution for 3.3?

hi, there is a way for you to escape your misery in java coding and adding new servlet where you will access repository and change admin password ( you can do anything actually )
If you do not find any other way in xmls let me know i can provide you with the code.

You could temporarily override this property (please revert back once the change has been made)

alfresco_user_store.adminusername=someotheruser

or you could override the authenticationComponent bean in the alfrescoNtlm subsystem as described in
