fitting a BB cache for a smart 642 in a DL380G4

I have upgraded the onboard 6i raid card in my server with a 642 and 128mb BB cache, however cannot work out where I attach the battery. It comes on a separate lead and plugs into the 642, but where do I mount the battery pack? I cannot see where i need to fix the battery other than there are no lugs or points to locate the actual battery itself. Being on a long lead it "floats" around. Part numbers are
642 RAID Controller 291967-B21

351580-B21 cache

Thanks

Simon
