Create two Disiaster Recovery Plans

Is this possible to create two Disaster Recovery Plans.
First is run every week, second is run once in a month.
I would be grateful for your answer as son as possible.

You can run "prepare" anytime, which creates your DR Plan file. Run "prepare" after each TSM db backup.
The problem is that when I create two sets of tapes with diffrent backup TSM database.
Problem is how to set diffrent retention time for example:
1. Week backup starts once a week with retention time 30 day and creates set of tapes.
2. Monthly backup starts once a month wth retention time one year and creates set of tapes.
Is it possible to set two diffrent retention time for those sets of tapes for offsite procedure.

Why would you want to keep your TSM database for 30 days or 1 year? If you have a disaster, you would want to restore to your most current backup of the TSM database, correct?
