I don't know what tape unit you are using but maybe you can use a variant of the following script. I hope this gets you on the right track.
echo off 
start /wait rsm.exe refresh /LF"Your_Library_Name" 
for /f "Tokens=1-4 Delims=/ " %%i in ('date /t') do set 
dt=%%i-%%j-%%k-%%l 
for /f "Tokens=1" %%i in ('time /t') do set tm=-%%i 
set tm=%tm::=-% 
set dtt=%dt%%tm% 
ntbackup.exe backup "@C:\Your_backup_script.bks" /n "Monday %dtt%" 
/d "Monday %dtt%" /v:no /r:no /rs:no /hcff /m normal /j "%dtt%" /l:f 
/p "4mm DDS" /UM 
rsm.exe eject /PF"Monday %dtt% - 1" /astart
