When you say "cluster" what exactly do you mean?

To me, "cluster" in a Solr context means "a bunch of Solr servers."  If 
this is what you mean, there is nothing built in to copy things from an 
existing cluster.  You *can* run multiple SolrCloud clusters on one 
Zookeeper ensemble.

If you are actually talking about a *collection* when you say "cluster", 
then what Erick said is 100% correct.
