Hey @driftingblueray,

I am sorry for long delay in getting a respond to you! You can use doctl CLI tools to update your existing Kubernetes Node Pools. Please use below command.

doctl kubernetes cluster node-pool update <cluster-id|cluster-name> <pool-id|pool-name> --tag terraform:default-node-pool

Please refer below link for more details.
