I just found my answer in the Tape section. Not the answer I was hoping for, but it's an answer.

What role was necessary to allow users to export/import tapes in v9?

Christensen,

It was a Backup Operator role but, unfortunately, permissions were modified in v9 Update 1 and now it requires ‘full administrator permissions’. We plan to fix this issue in the upcoming update and grant back the backup operators ability to import/export tapes.

Thank you for the response. Do you know when this update is scheduled to be out? We need our help desk people to be able to export tapes, but not administer the application.

Sorry, but still actual topic. I haven't find any answer to this.
In V9.5, 'Backup Operator' role are not allowed to import/ export tapes.

@Dima P.
2018 is coming :) . Do you know when this role will be updated?

On the version 9.5 latest update, still the backup and replication console requires a windows' user a/c which is a part of local administrators group. still no workaround via user group user a/c
