All computer services at the state Department of Motor Vehicles were restored Thursday morning after an hours-long shutdown due to a software issue.
A software update by the state IT department caused a communications problem that took down the network late Wednesday night, department spokesman Kevin Malone said.
Service was restored about 10 a.m. Thursday, Malone said. During the shutdown only the online appointment system was functioning, Malone said.
