I really appreciate all your responses. My problem was as follows:

The answer was pretty simple (and obvious), except I did not take the time
to investigate that there was a "resize" function under File Systems and
Volumes also in Volume Manager. I had resized the volume, but not the
filesystem. After using the resize function under Filesystems I saw the
additional 2GB in /export.

Thanks again to all of you, especially for the quick responses.
