If search works, zebra is running.

What might have happened is that you somehow have an instance running
that isn't connected with the daemon controller system and so it checks
for it, fails to find it, tries to start a new zebrasrv, and that fails
because there's already one there.

I've seen this happen occasionally though I don't know what gets it into
this state. My suggestion would be to do koha-stop-zebra library, pkill
zebrasrv, then do koha-start-zebra library.

But, if search is working, it's safe enough to leave alone, just have in
the back of your mind that it's a bit strange right now. It'll probably
clear itself up next time you do a reboot anyway.
