I am trying to find a way to run ad-hoc backups to tape outside of the normal protection group settings.

Could you please elaborate on your request further as to are you planning to do additional backup of protection groups apart from those already scheduled or are your looking to backup targets not included in Protection Group?

I want to perform backups as and when required prior to upgrades or maintenence, these are backups of targets that are already in protection groups

In that case within the DPM 2010 Console go to the Protection Expand the protection group in which your backup target is a member,
You have to select the members of whose backup you require, then right click and select
Create Recovery Point option.

The backup job will start immediately. Remember this process will create a full Backup of the selected Protected member.

Enjoy....
