The agent versions go with the OMS version, not with the versions of the targets. In general you want your agents to match the OMS. There is a metalink note that gives a compatibility matrix for various combinations of OMS Agent and monitored target. I don't have the number but a search for Grid Control certification checker should find it. I don't know if its possible to use an 11g agent with a 10g OMS - I doubt it but the note will tell you and confirm the minimum Grid version required for 11g targets - from memory.

 Should the Grid Control agent come automatically with the database software? I have an AIX target box with some 10g and 11g databases and I want to use GC agent to configure with a 10G GC server on another box to monitor all of them. If the agent doesn't come with the database software, what is the best way to download it? Do you have to acquire the entire 11g Grid Control software or can just the agent software itself be downloaded off of Metalink from the downloads patches section? Not sure how to find just the agent software for AIX.
