I am trying to export one domain into another

for example

I use this command

C>ldifde -i -f ouput.ldf -c "dc=kwat,dc=sa,dc=ds,dc=a,dc=com dc=vm,dc=systems,dc=local" -v -k -j c

I get this response

C>ldifde -i -f ouput.ldf -c "dc=kwat,dc=sa,dc=ds,dc=a,dc=com dc=vm,dc=systems,dc=local" -v -k -j c
Connecting to "server.VM.Systems.Local"
Logging in as current user using SSPI
Importing directory from file "ouput.ldf"
Loading entries.
There is a syntax error in the input file
Failed on line 3. The last token starts with 'o'.
0 entries modified successfully.
An error has occurred in the program

Can anyone help me?
