    I don't use Postman (I use cURL instead).

    You just need to send a REST API call to BIG-IP 1 to add the peer unit (BIGIP-2) to the existing root trust domain:

    curl -sk -u <ADMIN USERNAME>:<ADMIN PASSWORD> -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X PATCH -d \
    '{"addDevice":{"deviceIp":"<BIGIP-2 MGMT IP ADDRESS>","deviceName":"<BIGIP-2 HOSTNAME>","username":"<ADMIN USERNAME>","password":"<ADMIN PASSWORD>"}}' \
    https://<BIGIP-1 MGMT IP>/mgmt/tm/cm/trust-domain/Root
