When I change the default password of the Admin user through the web client I get the error on Alfresco server startup:
Exception from executeScript - redirecting to status template error: 06170004 Login failed
org.alfresco.web.scripts.WebScriptException: 06170004 Login failed


Complete error message:

As soon as I change the password back to the default "admin" the error disappears. I tried to find out where this password is hardcoded but I can't find and the error message unfortunately does not tell me which script is failing here. Anybody knows where I have to change the password in addition to changing it through the web client?
