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

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...).
