I want to compare my vcf file with dbsnp so i have used RTG tools for comparing my results while running it i have encountered the error

Error: Record did not contain enough samples: 1 69552 rs55874132 G C. CFL;HD;OTHERKG;REF;RS=55874132;RSPOS=69552;S3D;SAO=0;SSR=0;SYN;VC=SNV;VP=0x050200000309000402000100;WGT=1;dbSNPBuildID=129

Command used for comparing ./Tools/rtg-tools-3.6.1/rtg vcfeval --all-records -b dbsnp_sort.vcf.gz -c Gatk_bowtie_sure_select.vcf.gz -T 3 -t Reference/RTG/HG37 -o Gatk

while comparing using vcf-compare

I got the results like this but i dont know to interpret my data can any one help me with these errors

Results from vcf-compare

rtg vcfeval performs a pairwise comparison of the (usually diploid) haplotypes asserted by the GT field in the sample column of your VCF. In your case, are supplying a VCF that does not contain a sample column.

Comparing against a "database-style" VCF like dbSNP is something that will be added to vcfeval in the future. For now, you could add a synthetic sample to your dbSNP VCF that includes a GT field with a value of 1 (i.e. referring to the ALT allele), and then run vcfeval with --squash-ploidy to tell it to do a haploid comparison only when it compares against your calls.

(Edit: since 3.7 vcfeval now supports comparison against database-style VCFs, using the special sample identifier "ALT")
