Configure 3 backups and select 1 drive for each job from the device & media tab of the backup job 

properties. Also configure media sets for each with proper overwrite protection and append period.

Concurrent backup of the same data is not recommended, instead you can configure a

duplicate job. So once the original job is completed duplicate backup will start which will be based

on the catalogs of the original job, It will save your network bandwidth.

Do you have LEO licenses installed?

With base license, you can use only one drive within a library at any given time. To use three drives simultaneously, you must have 2 LEO licenses installed.

Also you can select the tape library in all the three jobs properties. BE will choose which drive to use.

Hope this helps....
