I am attempting to update "Posture and Profile Data Updates" on two 25K Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager Appliances. The one big caveat is neither of these devices can access the Internet. The last update was completed November 24, 2015, is there a way to manually download and install these updates without the Internet query of the ClearPass  Subscription Server?

Or is there a way to enter the Subscribition ID and get what this particular device needs?

Thanks for the Help.
