SATA cable from Smart Array P212 to 4-port back plane

One of our DL160 G6 server (S/N USE944N5VA,P/D 491532-B21) came with its on-board B110i RAID controller connected to a 4-port SATA backplane connector (part number 570079-001), we are trying to install an HP add-on smart array P212 controller (part number 013218-001) but the cable came with the P212 (Spare PN 498426-001) will not work with the backplane currently inside the server.
My question is – Do we need a different cable or a different backplane to make them work; please provide me the correct part number so I can place order.

NOTE: The addition of storage controllers for internal hard drive use is intended for use ONLY with the Hot Plug SATA/SAS Model Chassis (P/N 491532-B21).

>>That's good.

The selection of the HP Smart Array P212 Controller for internal and external connectivity, will require the use of the Full Length Full Height PCI-E x16 slot

>>So remember to put the card in the right slot.

NOTE: A minimum of one Hot Plug HDD Backplane option is ONLY required when purchasing Hot Plug CTO Chassis Model (P/N 491532-B21) in Step 1.

>>Did you purchase this backplane?

See the quickspecs:

Many thanks for your reply, the server came with a 4-port SATA backplance ((part number 570079-001), will it work? Please see the picture I took attached.

Hi, cool.

I've never seen those before :)

You can look them up there.

The spare part number you have does not show up in the backplanes in the quickspecs.

So based on that - no I don't think it will work with the p212.

Yeah and according to partsurfer it is in lots of hot plug models! But I wonder how much the partsurfer can be trusted..
