Storage works ultrium 920 SAS - PLEASE ADVISE!!

 hope someone can help me with this, this is literally driving me crazy, my salesguy doesnt seem to know anything and neither do his so called "hp tech support people".  I just bought a HP DL360p Gen 8 server/rack mount, and I also have a brand new HP Storage works Ultrium 920 SAS that I had purchased with another server some years back and never used. Well I finally would like to use it since this will be the server backing up our ERP system. Problem is I cant get a straight answer on how to hook this thing up. Now I dont have the server yet, but my salesguy was telling me that all I need is a HP SC11Xe HBA controller card. The tape drive came with two types of cables, kind of hard to describe. On one side is a connector with the following p/n on it (406595-001/REV.F) that I would imagine should plug inside the server case somewhere, but it doesnt plug into this HBA controller card. Then in the middle of the cable is a PCI slot cover with a cable coming out of it that will connect to the tape drive itself.  Somewhere in the middle here im missing a part and no one seems to be able to tell me what it is.  Does anyone know??  This is the card and the cable im trying to work with.

Then last night right after I posted this. I found this on HP's website.

http://h30094.www3.hp.com/product/sku/10427310/mfg_partno/650926-B21, would this one work. Im going to be running RAID 10 on this machine and I dont know if that config would still work with this other card or not. Hopefully someone with alot more experience then me in these thing can chime in.  - Thank you
