Replacing third party drive encryption with Bitlocker

Copper Contributor
Hello All,
I wanted to know if possible to use double encryption i.e. deploy bitlocker while having a third party encryption for drives enabled already.
The idea is to deploy bitlocker for devices with third party encryption such as symantecs drive encryption then phasing out symantecs encryption later. Is that supported and if so, How do we go about it?
We have tested already using bitlocker while symantecs is enabled and after restarting, as soon as we get past the symantecs login screen, Bitlocker recovery screen is shown and we have to use the key. 
Also D drive does not seem to get encrypted even though full disk encryption is on in the policy and D is not a system drive. maybe because Symantecs encryption  is still enabled? or pending decryption?
The settings mainly used are for silent enablement(allow third party warning: disabled).
I would appreciate if you have the best practice for similar scenarios.

Not supported and definitely not recommended. You are looking at removing third party encryption and then re-encrypting the devices using BitLocker.
