[root@linuxcnf ~]# vi $ALF_HOME/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco-global.properties
# Add/modify this line
alfresco_user_store.adminusername=user1
[root@linuxcnf ~]#

Step 2: Restart Alfresco service to effect the changes on configuration file:

[root@linuxcnf ~]#service alfresco restart

Step 3: Now login as this user using any browser by alfresco url and now you have administrative privileges so update the admin user password.

Step 4: Revert the configuration as below. Open alfresco global configuration file and remove the below line:

[root@linuxcnf ~]# vi $ALF_HOME/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco-global.properties
# Remove this line
