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.

Yes if you click the arrows it will move it to a setup/view screen then hit again and one should say Drac where you can should be able to see the IP that is set on 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 :
