Hi

You should use

splunk apply shcluster-bundle -target :

Where target server is one of your SHs.

I'm not trying to apply the bundle I'm trying to stage it first, wouldn't this skip the staging step and potentially shut down the environment if there's a problem?

Even you do an action stage on the first phase to check if rolling-restart has needed you must specify the —target https://shX.doma.in:8089.
