Update the software catalogue on a dark network

Hello, I am interested in using Kace1000's software catalogue to update drivers on a large portion of my dell machines. The issue is, the k1000 box and the network its on are all permanently disconnected from the internet. Is there a way to manually download just the Dell Drivers and Bios Updates portion of the software catalogue and apply it to the server?

For the software catalog: Open a SR with KACE Support, they will provide you one.

For Dell: Well, this is an issue, since it is not (yet) implemented, but you can vote for it on kace.uservoice.com.
In the mean time you can install these via a script using the official drivers and BIOS. 

For "normal patches": there is an offline patching feature: https://support.quest.com/kb/136026

Unfortunately, the software catalog will not help you with the distribution of Dell Drivers or BIOS Updates.
Depending on the Dell update, you may be able to use Scripting or a Managed Install.  You would download the necessary package from the Dell Web site.
