Never did find out how to do a hardware reset to factory defaults but, 
as it turns out, the previous admin had put a base OS install on it and 
used the standard root password we use for servers before putting the 
them into production.  I just booted up with my laptop plugged into the 
SER MGT port and when I got the login prompt I logged in as root and 
cd'ed to /usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin, then ran scadm userpassword 
admin and changed it.
