I know you guys are way smarter than this, but why not remove the Pi from 
the rack, take it to the required monitor (and keyboard, and return it 
when fixed? Since it isn't working anyway, no one will miss it. when it is 
working, it will be apparent (on the same network), and you can move it 
back. The reboot will prove it is fixed and all this will well - or am I 
missing something?
This must be are more complicated that I immagined.
