Linux

Kevin Chant explains how you can use local repositories to make installing SQL Server on Linux easier when you have servers lacking Internet access:

Now, some of you more experienced Linux users probably know there is another way to do this. When I previously had to create a Hadoop environment I had to implement a local repository.

In other words, I copied the contents of the online repository locally and created my own repository on a server.

That way I could manage installing software onto multiple clients using the same secured files in a local location instead of online. Which means I could install using the same method I would have done with internet access.

Kevin provides links and some notes on the process.
