You will use Storage Life Cycle Policy (SLP) to control the duplication. I have linked to the SLP best practice manual.

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH75047

SLP are a little bit complex, you really need to understand how they work before implementing them.

The ultra short guide to SLP:

1: You configure a SLP. A SLP defines how the backup is treated. (eg. weekly stay on PureDisk, Monthly backup are staged to tape after 3 weeks). You will need more SLP if you want to treat backup differently.

2: In the policy you point the schedules to a SLP (e.g weekly backup to weekly SLP, Monthly backup to Monthly SLP etc etc)

3: Netbackup does the magic.
