indels ApplyRecalibration

I am trying to set GATK pipeline with version 3.1. Everything went well so far...
Also- SNPs calibration went well. The problem is with applying calibration on indel.
Here are the commands I used (the first was finished successfully, but not the second):

java -jar /home/lvzvia/GATK-3.0/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T VariantRecalibrator -R /ngs001/db/gatk_resources/bundle/2.5/b37/human_g1k_v37.fasta -input Combine1.vcf --maxGaussians 4 -resource:mills,known=false,training=true,truth=true,prior=12.0 /ngs001/db/gatk_resources/bundle/2.5/b37/Mills_and_1000G_gold_standard.indels.b37.vcf -an DP -an FS -an ReadPosRankSum -an MQRankSum -mode INDEL -recalFile raw.INDELs.recal -tranchesFile raw.INDELs.tranches -rscriptFile recal.INDEL.plots.R

java -Xmx3g -jar /home/lvzvia/GATK-3.0/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T ApplyRecalibration -R /ngs001/db/gatk_resources/bundle/2.5/b37/human_g1k_v37.fasta -input Combine1.vcf -tranchesFile raw.INDELs.tranches -recalFile raw.INDELs.recal -o recal.INDELs.vcf -ts_filter_level 99.9

The error message:

##### ERROR MESSAGE: Encountered input variant which isn't found in the input recal file. Please make sure VariantRecalibrator and ApplyRecalibration were

The input vcf contained both indel and SNPs and it went well for the SNPs.
