GenomeSTRIP CNVDiscoveryPipeline without LSF

I am running GenomeSTRIP CNVDiscoveryPipeline on a set of bam files on a server that does not have LSF installed. Is there a separate mode that works on a standalone server, or is LSF a strict requirement regardless?

I am running the command
java -Xmx8g -cp ${classpath} \
org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.QCommandLine \
-S ${SV_DIR}/qscript/discovery/cnv/CNVDiscoveryPipeline.q \
-S ${SV_DIR}/qscript/SVQScript.q \
-cp ${classpath} \
-gatk ${SV_DIR}/lib/gatk/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar \
-configFile ${SV_DIR}/conf/genstrip_parameters.txt \
-ploidyMapFile $PLOIDY_MAP_FILE \
-genderMapFile $GENDER_MAP_FILE \
-I $bam \
-md $OUTPUT_FOLDER/metadata \
-runDirectory $OUTPUT_FOLDER/run/$bam_id \
-jobLogDir $LOG_FOLDER \
-tilingWindowSize 1000 \
-tilingWindowOverlap 500 \
-maximumReferenceGapLength 1000 \
-boundaryPrecision 100 \
-minimumRefinedLength 500 \

Unfortunately, I am not getting any calls in the output folder. Instead, I am seeing the following exception thrown in each log out file (such as CNVDiscoveryPipeline-304.out):

INFO 17:43:35,051 QCommandLine - Done with errors

How can I fix this issue and get CNV calls output?
Thanks for any help!

EDIT: Should probably be in GenomeSTRIP forum section.
