For a scheduled backup to run (without having to say yes to whether you want to overwrite the existing data) you must have inserted the correct tape into the drive.
This means the media label on the tape must be the same as the one in the scheduled job.
Before using a tape for automatic backup label it to your liking and then setup the job to use that tape.
