I am trying to install a SAS hotfix for SAS9.3_M1 to fix the problem for procedure "geocode", and the instruction says that the SAS deployment manager is needed to do the job. Weird enough, our server doesn't seem to have that tool (SAS deployment manager) installed. Could anyone please help me about this? Does this tool have to be purchased separately? Thank you very much.

The SAS deployment manager is part of your SAS software depot. see

If you haven't checked already, it's also worth looking for the executable itself.
On my machine it's C:\Program Files\SASHome\SASDeploymentManager\9.3\sasdm.exe
I have seen occurrences where the SAS Deployment Manager is installed but not present in the Windows Start menu.

The SAS Deployment Manager is a tool that looks very much like the SAS Deployment Wizard. However, the SAS Deployment Manager is used for post-installation configuration tasks such as configuring some products, applying hot fixes, updating metadata, and uninstalling SAS software. active SAS sessions, daemons, spawners and servers must be terminated before applying this hot fix i think. you can find more detail regarding "G" related hotfixe below here
