ECC EHP5 upgrade:is i mandatory to upgrade netweaver portal & BI systems

Hi Gurus,

Currently we are having landscape of :

1.SAP ECC6.0 SP stack at 17

2.Netweaver Portal 7.0 SP stack at 17

3.Netweaver BI 7.0 SP stack at 12

Currently, viewing BI reports using Portal.

We are planning to upgrade our ECC 6.0 system only to EHP5

My questions are:

1. Is it mandatory to upgrade netweaver portal and BI systems also.

2. We are very less dependent on BI. So, can we continue with the same old BI system with ECC6.0 upgraded to EHP5?

Please shed some light on this.

Thanks in Advance.

Generally speaking you have to keep the Portal dependancies

at equivalent SP levels to the back-end ECC -

Please see the following notes regarding the recommended

SP levels for ESS/MSS and ECC

The following note explains this:

The only dependency between Portal and backend is that Portal must have

the same or superior version Release (7.0, 7.1...).
