SAP installation keys for upgrades or new installations?

Our Basis group is preparing to upgrade from 4.6c to ECC 6.0. I see notes that an installation key is generated using Solution Manager. Another note stated this key was only good for four weeks and I would need to get a key from SAP afterwards. Will I need to get an installation key from SAP for an upgrade or is that only for a new installation?

I was unaware that the upgrade key generated in Solution Manager is only good for 4 weeks. I have never come across this limit.

You do not need a new installation key from SAP for the upgrade. You do need to renegotiate your contract as there...

is a big difference between 4.6c and ECC from a licensing point of view.
