You can also do two transition snapmirrors from the source (one to the new source and one to the new destination)

Subject: Re: Transition snapmirror to regular snapmirror
They talk about transitioning the target from the existing snapmirror, however this is going to work in my environment, I think.
Based on this doc, I think I will need to do a complete sync during the outage window.

I am trying to migrate a replicated volume to CDOT, but I can't use 7mtt. My plan is to set up a transition snapmirror and do the cutover manually. I can't start the regular snapmirror of the CDOT transition snapmirror target, though. I get "Using a transition volume as a snapmirror source volume is not supported".
I have a long outage window, but would prefer to pre-seed the mirror of the new volume. What would you folks suggest?
