The error of Mark Dupplicate

cymcym ChinaMember Posts: 4

I run the step of Mark Duplicate in the server, but it always print an error message even though I changed server.
This is my input:
java -jar /home/yangguoqian/biosoft/picard-tools-2.5.0/picard.jar MarkDuplicates INPUT=/home/chenyunmei/hetero/moso_gatk/bam/Bamboo-PCRfree_Round68_Lane1.bam OUTPUT=/home/chenyunmei/hetero/moso_gatk/markDup/Bamboo-PCRfree_Round68_Lane1.dedupped.bam METRICS_FILE=/home/chenyunmei/hetero/moso_gatk/markDup/Bamboo-PCRfree_Round68_Lane1.dedupped.metrics.txt VALIDATION_STRINGENCY=LENIENT CREATE_INDEX=true REMOVE_DUPLICATES=TRUE

And the follow is the error message:
optimized capture of last three ':' separated fields as numeric values> OPTICAL_DUPLICATE_PIXEL_DISTANCE=100 VERBOSITY=INFO QUIET=false COMPRESSION_LEVEL=5 MAX_RECORDS_IN_RAM=500000 CREATE_MD5_FILE=false GA4GH_CLIENT_SECRETS=client_secrets.json

Please help me. I have waste a lot of time in this, but I really don't know what is the reason.
