Is there a way to profile a printer that uses a static IP address by querying the printer via SNMP? I do not wish to maintain a list of MAC addresses so I am trying to determine the best way to automate profiling printers. If not SNMP, is there a better way?

Are they wireless or wired?
If they're wireless, you can use the IF-MAP feature of the controller to push profile information.
If they're wired, you can use the subnet scanner feature.
You can also use the MAC vendor attribute.

If I am reading the subnet scanner feature correctly, it appears that it will query devices in the subnet with community string "public". Is there a way to add a list of strings for snmp to use? I don't see an option...

Your correct in your observation in that today we only support a single RO community string. We will add support for multiple RO strings in our next CPPM s/w release (6.5). This will enter a beta program soon with planned FCS for end of Feb 2015.
