Orphaned nodegroup keeps creating EC2 instance



I created an EKS cluster with Terraform. After destroying it with Terraform, I still have an orphaned nodegroup that I cannot see in the dashboard nor with awscli.

And this nodegroup keeps creating an EC2 instance. If I delete the instance, the nodegroup creates a new one.

This is generating billing costs for resources I am not using.

Any adivice?

I found my issue and will leave it here for reference.

In fact what I had was not an orphaned nodegroup. But I had an auto scaling group instead. And that auto scaling group was spinning up the EC2 instance. After deleting the auto scaling group, I was able to delete the VPC.
