Whilst performing some application deployment testing to computers on a new subnet, I came across an error in the Software Center stating that it was Unable to download the software and returned the following useful error:
“The software change returned error code 0x87D00607 (-2016410105)”
Looking further into the issue I found that this new subnet was not configured within the SCCM boundaries and hence not in a boundary group.
If the network your client is in, does not exist as a boundary and within a boundary group, SCCM will not offer any software deployments to that client because it is outside it’s scope of management you have defined.
Boundaries are automatically created (if you told SCCM to) from Active Directory sites and the subnets within those sites when you run your discovery methods.
In my case a subnet and AD site did not exist to be automatically created. If it did then I would still need to add it to a boundary group.
1. To resolve this an IP address range needs to be created within:
Adminstration –> Hierarchy Configuration –> Boundaries
2. Then add that newly created IP address range boundary to your boundary group.
3. Try installing you software again via the Software Center and it will now succeed.
