Multi-sample SNP calling with UnifiedGenotyper

I've been scouring the forums, but I fear that my question is so basic that I am alone:
I have whole genome sequences of 6 samples (and so 6 .bam files) of a non-model organism and I am trying to compare SNPs for downstream population genetics analyses. I attempted this using UnifiedGenotyper (I realize that HaplotypeCaller is better, but UG finished first, while HC has been running for days at the time of this writing.) Here is what I entered:

java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -R reference.fasta -T UnifiedGenotyper -I sample01.bam -I sample02.bam -I sample03.bam -I sample04.bam -I sample05.bam -I sample06.bam -o output.raw.snps.indels.vcf

Unless I am mis-reading the output VCF file (first few lines are pasted below), it seems to contain only a single sample (based on the fact that there is only a single column for ALT, rather than one per sample). I tried to use this file in SNPHYLO, but it errors because "There are no SNPs", which seems to confirm this.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks, and apologies for any redundancies.
