Did you solve this? I'm getting the following error on one of our linux servers...

Checking prerequisites...
Checking mgmt port [8089]: open
Checking conf files for typos... Done
All preliminary checks passed.

Operation "is_pid_valid" failed in /opt/splunk/p4/splunk/branches/5.0.1/src/libzero/conf-mutator-locking.c:261, conf_mutator_lock(); Operation not permitted
Conf mutator lockfile has PID 18797, but my PID is 1144; error condition likely.

EDIT:
Restarted the VM and now it's all working again not sure what happened. It was right after doing some security patching on our RedHat install.

All i can say is, This is likely due to forwarder not able to contact to splunk server, and u got this error.

just delete the forwarder and add again, thru CLI.
in my case it worked.....

and in case last escape is just reinstall forwarder, it will work if u got all required ports opened. 🙂
