Trying out the newly released Load Balancer service it seemed like a nice thing to add droplets as targets using tags. I created a lb tag on the relevant droplets and everything worked perfectly.
As doctl and the python library isn’t yet updated with support for the Load Balancer my first thought was that to remove a droplet from the pool I can just remove it’s tag. This doesn’t seem to work, removing the tag does not affect the membership in the Load Balancer pool it seems.
The question is, is this a bug or is it not meant to work? I’m fully aware that it’s a bit hackish, just curious.
