We have deployed Openstack Icehouse. We are using neutron networking with ML2 driver and vlans.

Is it possible to change the configuration to use vxlans instead - does this require alot of reconfiguration on open vswitch, or can I simply update the neutron configuration, delete all existing virtual networks and re-create them?

Try two replacements Neutron Server && One Compute Node + Services restart
Check whether it will bring up VXLAN tunnel ?

[root@icehouse1 ~(keystone_admin)]# cat /etc/neutron/plugin.ini-> /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf.ini
type_drivers = vxlan
tenant_network_types = vxlan
mechanism_drivers =openvswitch
vni_ranges =1001:2000
vxlan_group =
enable_security_group = True
