Use BEMCLI utility
If your backup job’s definition is called "MYSERVER Backup 00001" and you want to change the full backup stage called "Full" and incremental stage named "Incremental", then you could do the following from the BEMCLI prompt:
BEMCLI> $backupDef = Get-BEBackupDefinition "MYSERVER Backup 00001"
BEMCLI> $backupDef | Set-BEBackupTask –Name "Full" -TapeStorageEjectMediaAfterComplete:$true
BEMCLI> $backupDef | Set-BEBackupTask –Name "Incremental" -TapeStorageEjectMediaAfterComplete:$true
BEMCLI> $backupDef | Save-BEBackupDefinition
