SCCM 2007 Branch DP won't install software

We have one site system and recently decided to add three additional branch DP's for our three remote locations. I added the three servers in the Site Settings as protected and have selected the proper Boundary. The boundaries were setup by a prior person as IP ranges with a slow connection. The servers are also in the DP's under the package. In the Package settings on the Distribution Settings tab, i have "auto download content" selected as well as "make this package available on protected DP...." Under the Advertisement settings, i have "download content and run locally" selected.  I also unchecked "allow clients to fall back to unprotected DP....."

The software is located on the BDP as i have verified it is there in the SMSPKGS$ folder. In the Advertisement status viewer, it showed message ID 1002 and then 1035 but nothing else. That was a a few hours ago. The software that i am testing on just one machine is not that big, but we are wanting to push out Office 2013 to our remote sites in the few weeks.  I have initiated the machine policy cycle on the client as well as restarted the client. i have also initiated Branch DP Maintenance task on the remote server.

What am i doing wrong that the software will not install at the branch location?

Thanks!

Nagendra,

do you want the logs from the primary site system or the Branch DP?

well from the target machine.

Also did your branch DP work earlier?

Attached are the two logs files from the client machine, and this is the first time we are working with Branch DP's.
execmgr.log

Seems to be a boundary issue

Calling back with the following distribution points      LocationServices      22-07-2014 16:00:00      3344 (0x0D10)
Distribution Point='\\lightning.jwcc.edu\SMSPKGS$\2170004B\', Locality='REMOTE', DPType='BRANCH', Version='6487', Capabilities='<Capabilities SchemaVersion="1.0"><Property Name="WOL" Version="1"/></Capabilities>', Signature=''      LocationServices      22-07-2014 16:00:00      3344 (0x0D10)


ContentAvailable ignoring update with no DPs for content request ID

Add a iprange boundary which has few ips including one of the target machine and add the DP to it. Let us see how it goes.

Modifying the boundary to a smaller range worked for the one test machine, and it appears to be working fine for the rest of the computers at the remote location.
