Sandbox - Anyway to disable?

The new sandbox feature with 11.1 is causing us a bunch of grief.

We have a number of bundles where we need to make some changes such as adding a requirements filter.
We do not want to increment the bundle version as we don't want to reapply the bundles to existing computers (it will break things).

How do we publish updated bundles from the sandbox to production without being forced to update the version?

Not sure that I follow... You want to change a bundle, but you do not
want those changes to be seen by the clients?

I don't want the changes to be seen by existing clients.

We don't want clients that already have the bundle to receive the changes.
We want clients that currently do not have the bundle to receive the changes.

Hope that makes more sense?

Bill108,

if you have not changed the install action item set, then it won't get
reapplied, just because the version has changed.

Great!
That will get us out of this pickle as we only need to change some requirements filters.

Just to make sure I have undrerstood this correctly.

The only way to get the bundle to install again when the version number changes is to either
1 - change or add an action under Actions->Install
or
2 - Verify the bundle

I had been under the impression that when the ZCM client refreshes it would reapply any bundles if the version number has been incremented?

No, A Refresh would not cause bundles to redeploy unless there is a
scheduled action for that to happen.

When publishing, instead of selecting a new version, select a new
bundle.

Then make a req. on that, that It'll only run if the former bundle
isn't installed

Or System Requirements on the action level to make sure it was not
already installed.
