Try backup the virtual machine again from TSM command line with the option VMBACKUPUPDATEGUID and the UUID will be updated on TSM server, see: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSGSG7_7.1.6/client.msgs/ANS1715E.html

Check carefully if you do not have 2 machines with identical names backing up to TSM, it happens if you copy client opt file without looking at it.

Loong ago it happened with TSM4 that it happily mixed backups of 2 nodes with same nodename. UUID effectively protects against this kind of damage.
Stop backups for one cycle and check what backs up with this node name and other UUID.
