Subject [users@httpd] Log File Name

Hi all -
I have a webfarm using a common httpd.conf for four machines connected
to a SAN. I would like to find a way to name the logfiles with the
hostname to identify what machine they came from.
I tried passing a shell variable like below;
CustomLog    "| /usr/sbin/rotatelogs /var/log/httpd/$HOSTNAME.%Y%m%d
86400" combined
CustomLog    "| /usr/sbin/rotatelogs /var/log/httpd/%V.%Y%m%d 86400"
but it didn't work,. I get the literal not the variable.
The reason is I am using webtrends to for log analysis and they can't
have the same logfile name. When I upload them they are overwriting each
other because they have the same name.
Thanks for any help
