You can automate the vault profile by creating a Vault-type policy.

Details in NetBackup Vault Administrator's Guide under this topic: 

About scheduling a Vault session
To run a vault session automatically at a specific day and time, use a Vault policy.
A Vault policy is a NetBackup policy that is configured to run Vault jobs; a Vault
policy does not back up client systems. The policy includes the schedule for when
the Vault session should run (day or date and time window) and the command to
run a Vault profile.
How you schedule your sessions depends on how you conduct operations as follows:
■ A Vault policy can run a profile that selects images, duplicates those images,
and ejects the media on which those images are stored. That policy can perform
both operations daily or at some other interval that meets your requirements.....
See “Creating a Vault policy” on page 117.
