I'm working as the snapshot directory owner, but
hdfs dfs -deleteSnapshot /path/.snapshot s201605-17-115857.294
deleteSnapshot: Modification on a read-only snapshot is disallowed
Trying to change the permissions on the .snapshot directory also returns Modification...disallowed.
What can I do?
Can you please try this? just remove .snapshot directory.
hdfs dfs -deleteSnapshot /path/ s201605-17-115857.294

It was as simple as removing the /.snapshot from the path?!
Thanks @Jitendra Yadav , clearly time for me to take a break...!
