Setting the Application ID of an IIS application

Today we had a problem with one of our web applications. We have an application that uses ASP.NET Session State. This application is load balanced across multiple machines. We deploy this with Octopus. But on some machines the Application Id were not the same and then Session State across load balanced machines don’t work. This means that only an octopus deploy is not reliable enough.

Is there some setting in Octopus to manipulate this Application ID. Or even better Octopus manages this Application ID.
