I am attempting to transform a lumiBatch and got the following warning message:

Warning message:
In lumiT(B.complete.RAW.lumi) :
  Too few probes are detectable based on detection p-values!
                        Iteration method will be used for VST.

I realize that this is a warning and not an error so I could proceed but I would like to know the criteria for triggering the warning.  I did not find a description of the "Iteration method" in the lumi documentation ( but may have missed it).

 Prior to transformation, I read in the raw data and background corrected with no errors or warnings. Here is the info about the lumiBatch up until the VST:
