|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE||January 3, 2014|
CARSON CITY – A repair/upgrade to DMV’s central computer system that will require a system shutdown is scheduled for tonight (Jan. 3) at 8 p.m. and will continue until 2 a.m. Saturday morning. The outage will add fours to the agency’s weekly scheduled system shutdown.
DMV services, including the agency’s website, kiosks and Vehicle Identification Database used for emissions testing will be down during the outage.
The repair/upgrade is in response to two system outages in the past week which have disrupted operations at DMV’s 16 offices across the state. The scheduled repair/upgrade is designed to correct a problem in the system’s controllers, which were damaged in a Dec. 28 air conditioning malfunction which created a water leakage in the agency’s server room that triggered a server shutdown.
