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.

Starting Adobe Campaign services

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

Download LibreOffice, for example from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ and follow the regular installation steps.
