I've installed solution manager 7.0. I'm at the point in the install guide where it says to execute SPRO and Run all activities under Standard Configuration of Basic Settings. I have not started this yet. We are upgrading our PRD system from 4.7 to ECC 6.0. All I really need solution for at this point is to generate an Upgrade Key and download support packs for the upgrade. I'm not sure how to do this yet but my first step is to get solution manager to point where I can do this. My question is what do I actually need to configure in solution manager to be able to get an Upgrade Key and download support packs?
Thanks in advance

Those are two different things.
For the key generation you need to have your system in transaction SMSY (this can be done quickly and manually).
To get the support packages for the upgrade you need to fully configure the SolMan and the Maintenance Optimizer, means, the system needs to be in SMSY with the correct package levels, you need to configure the connection to SAP (using saprouter) and more things.
All that is documented pretty well in the configuration guides at http://service.sap.com/solutionmanager.
