Hi @Tabriz 

If you really really want to duplicate to the new tape - create a specific pool for this purpose. Put the new tape in there and specify the pool in the duplication command(s).

That said, NetBackup does a very good job of managing tape usage and typically there is no requirement to specify a tape to use. Let NetBackup manage the media and let it use the new tape as it will.
