The picture shows the blue SATA cable, and the black "power" cable, ending in a 4-pin connector. I have a 10-pin MOLEX available, but I'd need a conversion cable to connect to that. There's nowhere else that I could plug this thing in.

I know that the drives for the 300 series come with three different cables, but the DL165 uses different parts.

I am able to connect the SATA connector to the mainboard, no problem there. It's just power that is lacking a place to connect to. The only thing I haven't done is take the housing off of the power supply to look for empty sockets.
Thanks for the replies! I've opened up a case with HP Support, as well as have my CDW rep get in touch with the HP dedicated rep for my state. I just wanted to also try this online forum in case someone has run into this as well.

We finally got our issue resolved by replacing the server and having our vendor do the installation at their site before shipping to us, to ensure it would work. HP tech support in India actually told us that the reason we had problems was because we bought an American-designed HP server instead of an Indian-designed HP server. Yes, they actually said this.

The connector label, per the Dl180 G6 Maintenance manual, is "CD". It is NOT on the system board. Rather, it is in the cable harness coming from the power supply. In many cases, there is a nylon cable tie routing it towards the backplane. In 8 drive models, this may work, but in a 12 drive with the DVD cage in the back, the cable tie needs to be removed, and the Cable with the "CD" connector needs to be routed between the system board and the fan cages. It can be a bit obscured.
