I have a deploy host with kolla-ansible, a control node and a compute node. all nodes are on my intranet so they don't have internet access. I have got everything installed and configured on all nodes according to documentation and now I am wondering when I try to build the containers and deploy, does kolla need access to the internet?

I have a local docker registry running but it currently has no images. I have tested it and I am able to push and pull images from it. But won't kolla use internet access for pull all the required images into the registry?

I followed all the openstack documentation but I am just wondering if there are additional changes I need to make since I don't have internet access?

Deploy does not need internet at all, only need a registry to pull images (internal in private network or public in dockerhub). Image building will need internet access to install packages.

Both phases are independent from each other, you can build the images and push to a registry from other node, your computer, etc.

So I have already pulled a random image on a vm that has internet and then pushed that images to the registry on my node that does not have internet. I did this just to test it out. But I am wondering what images I need for the kolla deployment?

Do I need to pull a bunch of specific images that kolla needs and then push them to my registry on the node that has no internet??

Yes, the images required depends on the services enabled to deploy
