This issue has been solved. See solution.
1. Are there any recommendations for the amount of media server in BE?
2. Is it possible to transfer settings to back up after a period of storage at D2D in a tape library.
3. Is it necessary to copy the virtual agents D2D for Fiber Channel?

1. Depends on your environment. If you have more than 1 physical location then you'd need 1 media server per site. I have used 1 media server to backup 23 site servers to the same server with no hassles. Licensing for the additional media server/s and agent licenses would also play a role, as well as additional hardware (both servers and storage), so consider that.

2. If you're talking about getting data from D2D to tape, then you would create a duplicate job. This duplicates the backups for a particular day to tape for instance.

3. Not sure what you mean by can backup VMs to tape or disk though.
