Unfortunately most LSB init scripts are not cluster-compatible by
default, they often do not implement monitor actions correctly and may
report incorrect status when the resource is not running.

I would recommend using an OCF resource agent if possible, or worst case
wrapping the LSB init script in a custom OCF resource agent which
handles the corner cases. Another option if you are running a system
with systemd is to use a systemd service. I have heard reports that
there are some issues with using systemd services directly as well, but
the ones I have tried have worked out of the box.
