SAP ERP6 (ECC6) upgrade to EHP4 with SAP NW 7.0 BI


I have the following Systems in my Landscape

ERP/ECC 6 (SPS 6)--ABAP Only

NW 7.0 BI (SPS18)--ABAP & Java with BI Content 703

Solution Manager 7.0 (EHP1 SPS 21)

We are upgrading our ECC6 system to:

EHP4 (SPS 5) for the ERP/ECC6 system --ABAP Only

I have reviewed the documents on the erp-ehp and ehp-inst websites and have reviewed the posts on this forum. I still have the following question:

1.) When I set up a new Maintenance Optimizer transaction in Solution Manager for our ERP/ECC6 upgrade to EHP4, it provided two different product versions that I can select from: EHP4 for SAP ERP 6.0 or ENP4 for SAP ERP 6.0 / NW7.01. I believe that since I am only upgrading the ERP/ECC6 at this time, I should pick product version EHP4 for SAP ERP 6.0. Is this true?

2.) Per the "Installation of SAP Enhancement Package 4 for SAP ERP 6.0 -- Technical FAQ" page 18 section 7.3, it states "If product version EHP4 for SAP ERP 6.0 is used and EHP1 for NW 7.0 is NOT installed on SAP BI system, then BI_CONTENT 704 must be installed". Is this the only thing that has to be upgraded at this time on our BI systems?

3) At a later time, we are planning to upgrade our NW 7.0 BI systems to the latest SPS (and possibly EHP). At that time, do we just create a new Maintenance Optimizer transaction in Solution Manager for the BI upgrade? Anything special that we need to do the our ERP/ECC6 systems?

4) Is there a reason to upgrade both our ERP/ECC6 and NW 7.0 BI systems at the same time?

Your comments will be greatly appreciated.
