You're "newer with linux"? You've been posting questions for TWO YEARS
Have you checked out a purpose-built backup tool, like Bacula or Amanda? If you've got production servers, and you're paying for LTO drives/tapes, and RHEL, consider spending the money needed to make it a very robust solution. Tar is fine for some things, but for rotating backups/tapes, keeping track of file versioning etc., it's not designed for it.
