No worries, fine to ask here. You're likely running into the ZK ACL we 
set to prevent unauthenticated users from removing things from ZK. This 
is where the value you set for instance.secret comes in.

In, before running your command, run the following:

addauth digest accumulo:$instance_secret

where $instance_secret is the value of instance.secret you set in 

The command should execute successfully (without any warning output). 
After, you should be able to delete to your heart's content in ZK.
