Can anybody tell me how to change the initial password of the Alfresco user 'admin'.

I tried the following on a Windows-Tomcat PR6 bundle installation on Windows
XP:

- Stopped browser sessions
- Stopped Alfresco (i.e. Tomcat and MySQL)

- Edit the web-client-config.xml file and changed the entry
<admin>
  <initial-password>blabla</initial-password>
</admin>

- saved the file.
- Restart Alfresco
- Opened browser with Alfresco url
- Tried to login as admin with the changed password (no success)  :?
- Tried to login with the inital admin password (success).   :?

Kind Regards,

Alex
