Setup a simple backup job

Hi Experts,
I just acquired a new client that has Simpana Commvault express and I'm use to Backup Exec, so this software package is a little backwards to me.  What I want to do is do a full backup of a single server every night with the same tape.  

To do this in BE, I would first create a media set (special server), set it to 22 hrs of overwrite and append protection, then associate media #44 to it.  Then I would create the job "special server backup", associate it with "special server" media set and schedule it to run every night.  

How can I accomplish this in Commvault?
