I have the feeling that you only read the manual. If you try to create an SLP you will understand how it is working.
Create a new SLP with
1. Backup that goes to DD with retention 1 month and
2. A Duplication that will duplicate your backup to tape with retention 3 months.
There is no way to schedule the replication time. At least at the current version. Maybe in the future. For now, netbackup will try to create all copies as soon as possible.

I’m reading through the SLP documentation but coming up a little short on understanding exactly how to accomplish a task. We have both LTO4 tape and a Data Domain 670. I would like to set a bunch of my data to go to the DD670 for 1 month, and then move to tape for an additional 2 months. This would give the data a full retention period of 3 months. But from what I am reading in the documentation, it sounds like it duplicate to tape as soon as it possible can, and then retain two copies at the same time. I do not wish this. I want only for the data to exist on one device for 1 month, than the second device for an additional 2 months. How exactly does one achieve this with the SLP options in 7.0.1?
