Action - How to fix it : DBA Scripts :: www.high-oracle.com/scripts

Ask your DBA to confirm configuration of both the ORACLE instance and the agent. Additional information on the version incompatibility is logged in trace (*.TRC) files, the ORACLE instance and the agent, and in the ORACLE instance's alert log.
