This issue has been solved. See solution.

How do you simply create a backup job to take data off of a disk and send it to tape?

I am not looking for B2D,D2T or any other acronyms....

I have data on storage device that I want to put onto a connect tape library.

Thanks...I think....

By data, do you mean a backup set, i.e. .bkf files?  If so, then you would need to create a duplicate job.  If you are using BE 2010 or older, then go to the Job Setup tab and look at the left-hand pane to create the duplicate job.  For BE 2012, in the storage tab, right-click on the backup set and click on duplicate.  In your duplicate job, you would be able to specify what media you want to duplicate to.  The above assumes that you have already done your backup.  For future backups, you can create a duplicate stage in BE 2012 or use a policy with a backup and duplicate template to do the duplication.

Do consult the Admin Guide which can be found in the BE installation directory for more details.
