Combination of ploidy and number of alleles ERROR when running GenotypeGVCFs
Hello. I've run Haplotype caller for 19 samples in
-ploidy 19 (19 is as high as I can get without getting an error for that, but that is a discussion opened elsewhere). Then, I've tried GenotypeGVCFs and get an ERROR (both command and ERROR below).
Just to add, I've run both HaplotypeCaller and GenotypeGVCFs with and without
-maxAltAlleles 4 to try to limit the referred combination; however, the output is exactly the same ERROR message at the end of GenotypeGVCFs. Do you think there might be a bug or am I doing something wrong?

ERROR MESSAGE: the combination of ploidy (19) and number of alleles (21) results in a very large number of genotypes (> 2147483647). You need to limit ploidy or the number of alternative alleles to analyz
