Hello,

We have five ESX 3.5 servers, three of them were update succesfully with latest patch, but two of them are working in strange mode, these servers has not esxupdate command, esxcfg-firewall, etc... version is 3.5.0.103908, also when i scan for updates i obtein the metadata issue, they are in different cluster of three servers that are working fine.

If those commands are not available then the updates will fail. it sounds like the install/update failed and caused a corruption. Your only safe solution may be to reinstall.
