Which cable needed for Storage System?

I have a Compaq Storage system UE, and would like to attach it to one of the Array controllers in my Proliant 6000 server.
The controllers are:
Smart Array 3200
Smart 2/P
I have found one cable (189635-003) available and need to know if it will work with either of the two controllers.

TIA

Hi Benjamin

The 3200 uses the external Very High Density Cable Interconnect (VHDCI) connectors but the 2p is using 68 pin Wide-Ultra SCSI/Fast-Wide SCSI-2 (Wide SCSI). Your cable connectors (189635-003) looks like the Very high density cable (VHDI). So it seemed that only the 3200 would work.

Re: Which cable needed for Storage System?

I haven't received the Storage System yet, so I don't know what connection is on the Storage System case. Does anyone know?
Thanks,
