I have been trying to deactivate some triggers on the production environment by setting their status in the meta data files to
Inactive , then deploying them straight to production with force.com ide from eclipse.
I did this process before for other triggers and was working fine, but now when I try to deploy it I get some failed assertion errors from the related test classes.
What would be the ideal solution in tackling this problem? The only thing I can think of currently is to remove the assertion checking from the test classes which seems to be the wrong approach.
