Not sure.  You may need v12.

However, you CAN use SQL Backup to backup to hard drive THEN backup the sql backup file to tape.

I would say you need to go to version 12. Below is the link to 11D's software compatibility and the highest version shown is SQL 2005. As glenn_1984 stated though, you could use SQL to make a backup, then backup that file.
