Password for the internal identifier

The Adobe Campaign server defines a technical login called internal that has all rights on all instances. Just after installation the login does not have a password. It is mandatory to define one.
See section Internal identifier .

To start the Adobe Campaign services, you can use the service manager or enter the following at the command line (with the appropriate rights):
net start nlserver6

If you need to stop the Adobe Campaign processes later on, use the command:
net stop nlserver6
