ML350 G10 - How to Power 6250 Tape Drive?

Hello everyone!

I'm sure someone will know this off the top of their head, but I'm having a hard time finding an answer that will work.

I'm presently configuring an ML350 G10 for a client. This client also wanted to run a tape drive again, so we opted for an Ultrium 6250. The tape drive requires additional power from a 4-pin molex connector. Unfortunately, I cannot find a way to power it for the life of me. There appears to be some 6-pin power plugs that are located behind the power supplies that I can only guess are for interal power requirements. That being said, I'm not having a lot of luck finding the proper adapters that adapt from the 6-pin to the 4-pin molex. Or I might just be barking up the wrong tree all together.

If anyone could shine some light on the situation, I'd surely appreciate it.

Thanks!
Mike

Does this kit also require a dedicated storage controller? Or can the The controller be used for the tape drive AND internal disk?
