I have made the following changes to my setup:

1)Added dell kace server ip Address/Host name to Forward and reverse lookup zone of my DNS server
2)Reinstalled Dell kace Agent and gave the kace server name as  "k1000.mydomain.com".
3)Deleted all the patch files from Patch Download settings and re-downloaded the patch files again.

Patch detect and deploy is working fine...
