There is nothing in NBU that

There is nothing in NBU that can migrate or read or import anything from TSM.

Without services from a 3rd-party migration company, your choices are:

  1. Keep one TSM server with backup devices (disk/tape) to cater for restore requests until all retention levels have expired.
  2. Restore all data on TSM storage to spare server/client, then backup with NBU. 
    You will need to plan this carefully and document properly as newly backed up data will not match the original client name.

There was tool called butterfly engine,which was used for this kind of automated migrations. But IBM accrued this product and currently supported for any other tool to TSM migration only and that's even free of cost. But no tool available for tsm to NBU migration atm.
