I really appreciate for your kindness help.My problem is not how to reset the admin password.My problem is that I can't log in Cloudera WEBUI as administrator due to my wrong setting(Cloudera Manager Authentication Backend Order with no immediate administrator). But it reminded me that I could change the table config in cloudera database.I deleted the row and restart the sever.Finally I could logged in with the default username and password "admin".
