Migrating and replicating server

I have an alfresco community server which I need to migrate to another server.
The migration process will take some time due to large contentstore and slow connection between old and new location.
In order to minimize downtime my idea was the following:
1. Stop server 1 and backup alf_data and db.
2. Start server 1.
3. Restore backup to server 2.
4. When server 2 is ready, run replication job on server 1 to server 2 transferring any content uploaded to server 1 since point 2.

I quickly noticed that this was not possible due to "Transfer to the same repository not allowed".

Any other ideas on how to accomplish this?
