um, simply unplugging it is not going to reset it to factory defaults, 
as the config is stored in NVRAM.

when you've reset its IP and username per the page given 
as the article says, it will default to DHCP, so you'll need to dig into 
your DHCP server's cache and find out what IP it was assigned based on 
its MAC address

If this network segment doesn't HAVE dhcp, you get to access it from a 
host on the SAME LAN segment which has had a 192.168.70.xxxx IP added 
... you can 'remote desktop' to a windows machine on that vlan, or ssh 
-X to a 'nix system, and config said target to have an extra address 
192.168.70.xxx then access the MM via a browser run on said remote host 
and reconfigure it.

whomever earlier 'knocked' the IBM AMM, I dunno, I think they are damn 
nifty, at least as nice as HP's iLO or Dell's DRAC.
