HP ML150 G6 - problem identifying hardware

Hello. We are trying to assemkble a new HP ML150 G6, we have just received the smart array card P212/ZM and want to connect a 4 port SAS/SATA cable kit (part number 457692-b21)
if looks like the cable doesnt quite fit . Would anyone know any more about this.
We need to attach 4 hard drives via the cable kit. The cable kit was recommended but I suspect it may be for G5 only?

HP NHP Internal SAS/SATA 4 Port Cable Kit
NOTE: This cable is required when adding Smart Array P410 Controller on Non-Hot Plug SATA/SAS server models. 487734-B21

Might be the same for P212, quickspecs are at http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13249_div/13249_div.html

Ta for poinks, We didn't sell you this by chance did we? As a major reseller of HP kit in the UK I'm getting baffled by the 100 series kit. Got customers complaining about not getting all the cables and the problem is spreading to the 380 G6 as well; you can put G5 series bits in them like the P800 but internal wires may not be available.

The quickspecs normally highlight additional cable requirements in blue but if A can't connect to B internally but can connect to C externally there needs to be a part number invented for the unavailable and impossible A-B cable.
