I work in an environment where there servers have no access to the internet. Is there and option to download the RPM files and run them locallly??
I assume you use a RedHat derivate (or RHEL), so this is for rpm. But otherwise you might find the page in installing via tarball.
Then follow instructions:
RPM - Open Distro Documentation and instead of yum from repo, do a localinstall with rpm?
Yes. We are running Centos 7. The directions said the tar install wasn’t for production, but I’ll give that a shot.
With a tar you have way more ways to screw up
But with centos I’ld prefer the rpm / localinstall way?
you can use the yum install
--downloadonly on server which has internet. then you have rpms
