I have an x64 Linux Ubuntu 18.04 machine which isn’t connected directly to the internet but via an air gap environment.
In other machine which connected to NGC, I pulled the docker image
And copied it to my offline machine.
When I try to run it using this command:

docker run “TLT Image ported name”:v3.0-py3

I got the following error:

--2021-11-02 09:57:25--
Resolving ( failed: Temporary failure in name resolution.
wget: unable to resolve host address ''

I already downloaded the ngc cil manually and installed it in my offline machine and configured its path in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Why the docker run command trying to access
How can I handle this issue when my machine has no access to it?

Because the docker will download and install latest ngc cli.

For your case, you can generate a custom docker based on tlt/tao docker.

Can you clarify please what is the meaning of custom docker?
Do you mean that I’m able to edit the internal logic of the TAO docker images?
For example, to remove the dependency on ngc cli too?

If yes, please describe the required steps to do that.


I mean you can build a new docker with a dockerfile based on tao docker.
