    Hi Yumi Hashi,

    Thank you for writing to the GATK forum. I hope that we can help you sort this out.

    So when looking at your command line history, your second command seems inconsistent with the first command. When you ran the VcfToIntervalList command, it generated the interval file to the current directory, which is the parent of bwa_bam. In the GenomicsDBImport command, you specified the directory location as one step below the interval list you had just created with the first command.

    Try rerunning with the corrected commands and see if that works. If not, please let me know, and we can investigate further.


    $gatk VcfToIntervalList 

    $gatk GenomicsDBImport \
      --genomicsdb-workspace-path bwa_bam/GenomicDB \
      --intervals bwa_bam/sample.interval_list \
       --sample-name-map bwa_bam/gvcf_sample_name.txt


    $gatk VcfToIntervalList \
     I=bwa_bam/gvcf/sample1_markdup.addRG.g.vcf \

    $gatk GenomicsDBImport \
      --genomicsdb-workspace-path bwa_bam/GenomicDB \
      --intervals bwa_bam/sample.interval_list \
       --sample-name-map bwa_bam/gvcf_sample_name.txt
