Computing rotation matrix from one vector

Hi, please, I would like to ask a help about finding a Rotation Matrix.

Doubt: Is it possible to get the Rotation Matrix of one vector at the System of Coordinates #1 to the System of Coordinates #2 ?

The transformation is below:
[ 0.245 -0.563 -0.055 ]' = R * [ 0.3 -0.5 0.2 ]'

I think it is possible because the setup above give me 3 equations and 3 variables (theta_x, theta_y, theta_z)... But, MatLab can not solve!

Thanks a lot
