BackupExec 2012 multi Backup copy to tape

Hello,

in BackupExec 2012 I have to create a copy to tape job for each server, not like in 2010 where I was able to backup to disk and after all B2D are done copy the hole backups to the tape.

I configured BackupExec 2012 with a backup to tape at the end for each server backup.

I use a library and created a media set with 4 tapes for the backup from monday to thuesday, will I get a problem because the tape will be locked after the backup job from server one?
Or is BackupExec locking the Backupfiles on the tape instead of the tape itself?

How I have to configure the backup2tape for each job?
Can I use different lock times?

Greetings
