[Note] Note

If your cluster does not have access to the Internet, or you are creating a large cluster and you want to conserve bandwidth, you need to provide access to the bits using an alternative method. For more information, see Optional: Configure the Local Repositories section.

When you have the software, continue your installation based on your base platform.
