Proliant ML330 with external DAT 72 help


I just purchased a HP Proliant ML330 G3 Server with a 36GB SCSI drive and an external StorageWorks DAT 72. The SCSI controller that ships with the unit does not have an external connector on it to hook up the external DAT drive. I purchased the internal-to-external SCSI cable but it appears to only replace the internal cable (which is hooked up to the hard drive). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
