Upon ejecting and inserting the tape media there are some configurations that
need to be applied to ensure the scheduled backup occurs on shcedule. Is
that right? If I eject a tape and then insert the tape I need to select the
destination and the backup media or file name.

I was hoping that i could eject and insert a couple of different tapes so
that i could remove it from the office. Pressing the eject button, an
inserting it easy. However if i need to insert the tape, then open backup
utility, and click the destination, and media then thats where i start
thinking, man removing the tape is kind of a pain. It may be more secure,
but is sure is a pain.

I don't know what you're using for backup software, but yes, it can
certainly be a pain. Some backup software/hardware doesn't need so much
user intervention.
