Does the dell have a screen on the front of the server lcd screen I mean ... you may be able to find the IP that if so. It would be smaller LCD with 3 buttons next to it.

No, if you can ssh to the iDRAC or use Racadm you do not need reboot.
You can use racadm remotely with -r flag. Check doc here :
