Resetting a McData switch to Factory defaults via serial connection

We have a McData 6064 sitting in our lab that has not been used in 3 years. I was able to get into it via serial, but no one remembers the administrator password for the web interface. Is there any way to do a reset of the switch to factory defaults via the serial connection, or otherwise force a reset of all passwords?

Starting up a 9970 in the lab caused the whole thing to crash, but I will try out the password reset method linked above tomorrow. The only thing is that these switches are on EOS 4.0, so I'm not quite sure if the pcp commands will work.
