HP 9000 K210 / K220 Adding disks, do I need power cables

I have a customer that has a K210 and K220 HP 9000 Servers. I got them some disk drives, but they did not come with power cables (A2375-63003).
Do these servers have the power cables dangling for the unused disk slots? Or do I need to purchase the power cable too?

Thanks for the help

The only way to find this out is to take out the disk cage. However, it is a normal power cable, nothing special.

Hope this helps!

The servers are out of state, I am bringing the
drives. The servers are production machines that cannot be brought down, to check the cage.
Of course when I go to add the disks, I'll be bringing the machine down. I would hate to open the cage, see no power chords, and all I have are the disks.... my bad

IIRC the cables belong to the drives, there are no "spares" inside by default.

Hope this helps!

I found the attached picture for you. I'm sure there is no spare power cable, unless there already was a disk before and somebody left the cable there.Part number was A2375-63003, just a normal power cable.

Hope this helps!

Well I need about a 12 inch cable. I could order it as a genuine hp part for $60 or $70.

Instead I got a Y power splitter cable at frys. It has 2 female ends and a male end that is the primary source. I plan on using both female ends.

http://www.frys.com/product/4357285?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG $3.49

Should work. Probably need to tape off the male end to make sure it doesn't touch anything to cause a short...

Any comments?
