Show the correct HTTP Server status in the IBM Web Administration GUI for HTTP Server running in user defined subsystem

As described in IBM web doc, IBM i has been enhanced to allow running an HTTP server in a user defined subsystem other than the default QHTTPSVR, but the status of the HTTP server is not reflected correctly on the IBM Web Administration GUI. The IBM Web Administration GUI (http://systemname:2001/HTTPAdmin) is not able to detect the correct status of the server when it is running in its' own subsystem (it can only determine the status for servers running in the default QHTTPSVR subsystem). The server will always show in a 'stopped' status in the GUI. This creates an operational issue and may slow the adoption of deploying critical application in IWS to production environments.

Use Case:

For HTTP servers configured to run in user defined subsystems, use the IBM Web Administration GUI (http://systemname:2001/HTTPAdmin) to perform HTTP server maintenance functions such as start, stop, and monitor the status of the http server.
