HA scripts with LSB compliant

We have a built a new HA cluster with redhat pacemaker and trying to create resources with HAScripts provided with the Datastage HA
installation but the HAScript provided for the WAS & InfoSvrEngine start/stop requires more options such as status.
The HAScript needs to be LSB (LinuxStandardBase) compliant, so that they can be brought under redhat pacemaker cluster resources.

For ex: The LSB compliant HA script expects, a status option to be available in the HA script.
Also, when the script is run with start option, when the target process is already running, the HA script should return exit 0 (status OK) but not non-zero status.
Also, when the script is run with stop option, when the target process is already stopped, the HA script should return exit 0 (status OK) but not non-zero status.
The LSB compliance can be found at : http://refspecs.linux-foundation.org/LSB_3.2.0/LSB-Core-generic/LSB-Core-generic/iniscrptact.html

can you provide LSB compliant HA scripts with these options?

    This is crucial for HA setup's, especially where the application RTO's are very small and SLA's apply. We are in the same boat and need this to be prioritized.
