ciscoworks device packages

Is there a device package for mds 9000 cisco switches which will allow ciscoworks to manage my mds 9120's. I'm pretty new to ciscoworks and just getting used to it but when I try to run ciscoview and select my 9120 device it says It doeesn't have the applicable devic package installed. I have looked at adding the device packages but can't see any which would support MDS 9000 range.

I am running ciscoworks ciscoview version 5.5

and this is my switch

Re: ciscoworks device packages

The MDS switch line is not supported in CiscoView, as there is an equivalent management application that is embedded on the switches and works in tandem with the MDS Fabric Manager.
