Will migration from 2.1.2 to 2.2 be possible?

I was wondering if there will be plans to easily migrate from DNN 2.1.2 to DNN 2.2? I say easily because some people run thousands of portals on 1 DNN system. There should be an easy way to automatically migrate from old DNN to new.
Is there going to be plans to allow this? If so, how will it work? Will any downsides exist?
How about existing 2.1.2 skins and modules. Will they all work in DNN 2.2?
How about the user model. Does that change in DNN 2.2? Right now its 1 username for the entire DNN server. Does DNN 2.2 have usernames unique to portals? If so, how will you handle the migration of users in 2.1.2?

The DotNetNuke core (and core modules) will always upgrade from one version to the next. Simple matter of moving the code in and allowing the application to restart. The DB is automatically upgraded as the site restarts.
The difficulty is integrated 3rd party modules. The next version of DNN is (unfortunately) going to introduce some changes which will break most 2.x modules... so upgrading is going to be a bit more complex. This problem was unavoidable (view post 713771). So it may be a short while before everyone can upgrade... new portals can start out with the new version, but sites that have heavy reliance on 3rd party modules are going to have to wait for their module providers to upgrade also.
Skins should be unaffected unless they utilize skin objects which are affected by the changes mentioned above (this should be very few).
I believe the user model will convert straight across, although I'll defer to Dan to answer about that.

I just reinstalled the SBS 6 with the NW6 SP3 Overly cd and i put web access, iprint, dhcp/dns, naas on the initial install.

From 2.1.2 to 3.2 ?
Hi everyone!I've been away from DNN for quite some time, feels good to be back. Hi to anyone who remembers me. Just starting to look at taking our intranet portal from 2.1.2 to, I guess, 3.2. We have 3rd party modules and custom code. Is there a best practice for the upgrade/migration? Just looking for some guidelines. Thanks in advance. I'm no expert, but I too had a 2.12 site in which I migrated to 3.1.1While researching the migration, many suggested that I had to remove all of my third party modules first.  Then perform the upgrade.  Then add as many third party DNN 3.x mod...

iManager 1.2.2 #2
Hi, I have a NW6 SP3 server which runs BM37. I am in the process of upgrading to BM38 and I am running through the pre-requests. One of which is to upgrade iManager to 2.0.1. This can be done by either install iManager on a networked PC or upgrading the version on the server. I have tried installing it on a PC however, after the install it reports some errors, when you look at the log file is VERY lenghty and doesn't mean much to me. When the browser opens it tries to connect on the ipaddress of the pc\imanager......It basically doesn't work. What I need is a meth...

From 2.1.2 to 3.1 or 2.1.2 to 3.0.13 to 3.1
I'm checking back in after being away for a couple of months and I missed the 3.1 release. I can't seem to find any info on what's new in 3.1 and also what the upgrade path should be. So, is the recommended path for upgrading from v 2.1.2 to go directly to 3.1 or do I need to go to 3.0.13 first? Are there any big issues in 3.1 that make it a "gotta have it" version?I did a couple of 2.1.2 to 3.0.12 upgrades but haven't upgraded to or tested 3.1 yet. I have one 2.1.2 site that is commercial and I need it to be down as little time as possible. It also has a lot of third party modules...
Occasionally I will get an alert from ZAF announcing "The firewall has blocked local network access to (DNS) from your computer." The explanation says that ZA has blocked access to Port 53 on a DNS server. Why would ZA block this? As far as I know, it has never requested permission to access this server and I have never denied such permission. I use a Netgear router, and in order to make it work with my system, I was instructed to configure the DNS Configuration of the TCP/IP Properties of my network card and add as one of my DNS Servers. Thanks for you...
