Software Deploy Group policies are not working at remote site

Software Deploy Group policies are not working at remote site

Software Deploy Group policies are not working at remote site

I currently have 3 domain controllers in my environment. 2 (DC1 & DC2) are at my main site (Site A) and 1 (DC3) is at my remote site (Site B).
When the network link between Site A and Site B is taken down users that log into remote Site B (locally) are not receiving the group policies that deploy software.

"gpresult /R" shows the deploy software policy is applied, but the software is not installed.
No errors in the event log.

The source for these software installs is my DFS which IS accessible at Site B when the link is down, as is the NETLOGON and SYSVOL directories.

All FSMO roles are at DC1. All domain controllers are Windows 2008 R2.

What am I missing here?
