How to access and re-configure an IBM FC switch 2109 model S08

I got a used IBM FC switch 2109 model S08 which I can't access through DB9 serial or RJ45 ports, nothing shows up in hyperterminal or by RJ45. I also read the "intall and service guide" from IBM but nothing still happens. Please help. I don't need aproximative answer but really working workaround to log in and reset the whole old config from the previous owner. Is there a way to easily do that ? Is it possible to discover the IP address used before acquisition ?

I also read through the manual quickly and found no alternative to setting factory defaults except what was listed in the thread above and the manual in the link.
