New Users in DNN 2.1.2

I have found that I cannot duplicate a UserName across any portals hosted on the same DNN site. Is this the intended functionality. I can understand not duplicating username across a single portal, but for my installation, I cannot duplicate a username across any portal, even Parent portals.

I would think there should be some link for a user to a portal, so that the same username could be used in a different portal.
Any thoughts?

This is done by default.

Here is a snippet where I have explained this before:
You can use the same email address as often as you want in the same or across portals. If user A is a member of portal 0, he/she can be added to portal 1 by being registered by an admin using the same username/password as portal 0 or by registering themselves by using the same username/password of portal 0. The user still only has one record. Now if I have a user B who is a member of portal 0, and someone else tries to register using B but passwords do not match, they are rejected. This will occurr in portal 0 or portal 1.
So you see, the same username can be used across the portals if the password matches.

Thanks for the reply. But what is the basis for not allowing the same UserName (but for different users) in separate portals.

If I have a user ljones in Portal 1, why should I not be able to have a user ljones in Portal 3, and this username be for 2 totally different users?
Just curious. I would think the key would be userid / portalid...but this is not the case. I guess most users are used to having to come up with clever usernames, since that is the case with most email accounts. So I guess most users will not question it when they are denied a username that is already taken and have to select another username.
Knowing that I can have the same username/pwd across my portals will be helpful.
Thanks again.

Hi, This seems to be a common question, but i havent got an answer yet:(Can, any one please explain me the differences between these versions.If you keep your feet firmly on the ground, you'll have trouble putting on your pants! There are too many differences for one email - - from 1.0 to 1.1 (not a whole lot of real change, other than fixes, at least compared to 1.1 to 2.0) With 2.0, there were many new declarative controls, with many new ideas added in With 3.0, it's a superset of 2.0 - instead of replacing the installation completely, it just 'added on' new functionality - I would...
