How can I change the instance type of my nodegroup?

From the point of view of eksctl, nodegroups are immutable. This means that once created the only thing eksctl can do is scale the nodegroup up or down.

To change the instance type, create a new nodegroup with the desired instance type, then drain it so that the workloads move to the new one. After that step is complete you can delete the old nodegroup.
