I'm replying to my own email as I managed to resolve the issue.
Sometimes it helps to RTFM.
I had to remove the export domain that I created on cluster2, as well as
detach the original export domain on cluster1, before I could attach the
original export domain to cluster2, as you can only have one export domain
attached at a time.
