Yes, thanks, this is exactly what I want to accomplish.
BTW, are export domains from different data centers visible to each other?

If not, wouldn't be simpler to export VM#1 in DC #1 to Export domain #1,
copy over ssh to DC #2 Export domain, and finally import it into DC #2.

PS. I can't test right now myself, sitting home on sick leave..
