save the destination store to tape

I' m trying to save the VDR destination store to tape with a windows physical backup server.

Please tell me if my uderstand of the 3 following environments is right:

First I power off the VDR appliance, so I'm sure that the VDR destination store is inactive

1) VDR destination store on CIFS sfare: my backup server can "see" the files inside the CIFS share and it is able to copy/move them to tape

2) VDR destination store on VMDK virtual disk: I need the VCB installed on my backup server to mount the VMDK on my backup server and it is able to copy/move the files to tape

3) VDR destination store on RDM : I can use the VCB installed on my backup server to mount the VMDK and it is able to copy/move the files to tape or I can backup directly the FC LUN seen from my backup server if I do not use automount

Any help will be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance and best regards
