First, notice the "> /var/sam/SAM_br_msgs 2>&1 ". This tells you that the answer to why your script only ran for 37 seconds should be in /var/sam/SAM_br_msgs.

The frecover command that you used should show the index on the tape, but with a run of only 37 seconds, it's improbable that fbackup even attempted to write one.

Yes, I would just write a script that invokes fbackup. Once I had the script running manually, I would put it in crontab. fbackup does not rely on any daemons for local work. If you backup nfs files, then you will need nfs daemons.
