hastatus command is in /opt/VRTSvcs/bin and there is a sym link in /opt/VRTS/bin, so add either of these to your path or specify complete path.  I would advice adding  /opt/VRTS/bin to your path:

export PATH=$PATH:/opt/VRTS/bin

'command not found' is a Unix error, saying that the current shell cannot find the command in your PATH variable.

You will find this recommendation in the sfha_install guide (Add the paths to your .profile to make it permanent):

Setting environment variables
Most of the commands used in the installation are in the /sbin or /usr/sbin
directory. Add these directories to your PATH environment variable as necessary.
After installation, SFHA commands are in /opt/VRTS/bin. SFHA manual pages
are stored in /opt/VRTS/man.

Add the following directories to your PATH and MANPATH environment variable:

■ If you are using Bourne or Korn shell (sh or ksh), enter the following:
$ PATH=$PATH:/usr/sbin:/opt/VRTS/bin
$ MANPATH=/usr/share/man:/opt/VRTS/man:$MANPATH

■ If you are using a C shell (csh or tcsh), enter the following:
% set path = ( $path /usr/sbin /opt/VRTS/bin )
% setenv MANPATH /usr/share/man:/opt/VRTS/man:$MANPATH
