Batch export coded value domains to table

I've attempted to write a script that will export all the coded value domains in a geodatabase to a table. Before I dig in the to script and what's wrong, I have looked at the similar question on this topic, but that script would not run for me. Here is my code:

 

import arcpy

 

arcpy.env.workspace = r"F:\ITree"

gdb = r"ITree.gdb"

arcpy.env.overwriteOutput = True

 

domains = arcpy.da.ListDomains(gdb)

 

for domain in domains:

     if domain.domainType == 'CodedValue':

          domain_name = domain.name

          print 'Exporting {0} coded values to table in {1}'.format(domain_name, gdb)

          coded_value_list = domain.codedValues

          print "The coded values / descriptions are"

          for value, descrip in coded_value_list.iteritems():

               print "{0} : {1}".format(value, descrip)

          out_table_name = domain_name.lower()

          arcpy.DomainToTable_management(gdb, domain_name, out_table_name, "item", "descrip")

     else:

          print "{0} not a coded value domain. Passing it up.".format(domain.name)

 

When I comment out the Domain to Table, the script runs and produces, this:

 

Exporting LANDUSE coded values to table in ITree.gdb

The coded values / descriptions are

1 : Single family residential

0 : Not entered

3 : Small commercial

2 : Multi-family residential

5 : Park/vacant/other

4 : Industrial/Large commercial

 

However, when I uncomment the Domain to Table, it produces the following error:

 

Exporting LANDUSE coded values to table in ITree.gdb

The coded values / descriptions are

1 : Single family residential

0 : Not entered

3 : Small commercial

2 : Multi-family residential

5 : Park/vacant/other

4 : Industrial/Large commercial

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "E:/Work/MDC/GISData/MOTools/Scripts/export_gdb_domains.py", line 29, in <module>

    arcpy.DomainToTable_management(gdb, domain_name, out_table_name, "item", "descrip")

    raise e

arcgisscripting.ExecuteError: ERROR 999999: Error executing function.

Failed to execute (DomainToTable).

 

It also produces the first table from the domain, but does not copy the coded values and creates an empty table. I've looked through the help documents for Domain to Table (Data Management) and List Domains, but I cannot figure out why it's throwing an error. Clearly something is off in the Domain to Table function, but I can't figure out what, especially since it prints all the parameters correctly. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions. Thank you for your time.
