Will ApacheNodeName work for IHS (IBM HTTP Server)

I have 3 IHS instances per server and would like to distinguish them using something like ApacheNodeName. Can I use ApacheNodeName on these IHS servers to name the instances?

I think it should work but we weren't able to try it yet because the bootstrap agent version needs to be 6.2 or greater, and although we were running 6.5 agents our bootstraps were 6.1. This caused Apache to fail to start when adding ApacheNodeName, but I do think it was the bootstrap agent version being the cause rather than the fact that it was IHS but I can't confirm. I had checked and there weren't any support cases that helped.

The workaround from the 6.1 era in place here is to use a separate primary web service agent for each agent that they wanted named separately (via unique directories) and then each apache instance would point to one in particular.

I can confirm ApacheNodeName works with IHS (IBM HTTP Server). We are running AppMon 6.5 (including the bootstrap agents).
