Set the type of backup to Application Backup.
Set the retention period to infinity (level 9).

NetBackup administrators may find the following

Enterprise Vault migrator:
You should take additional tape drives and storage
slots into consideration when you use the NetBackup migrator
feature to store Enterprise Vault data.
If tapes are removed from the library, timeouts can
occur and you may not be able to automatically retrieve your
Timeouts can occur if all tape drives are in use
when an Enterprise Vault user or application accesses the data that
resides in a library.
Timeouts can occur if a migration occurs (writing
