An internal PostgreSQL database is embedded in the Workspace ONE Access appliance and is configured and ready to use by default.

Note: The internal database is not recommended for use with production deployments. The recommended database for production deployments is an external Microsoft SQL database.

When Workspace ONE Access is installed and powered on, during the initialization process, a random password for the internal database user is generated. This password is unique to each deployment and can be found in the file /usr/local/horizon/conf/db.pwd.
