Doesn't look wrong, so I guess that your server isn't running "At
present" and thus your property doesn't get set at all.

Put a <property name="alreadyRunning" value="false"/> between
<condition> and <echo>.  If the condition evaluates to true, your
property will have a value and the <property> task will have no effect
(properties are immutable).  If it doesn't, <condition> will not set
it and <property> provides the default value.
