MRP type VM
When we use MRP type VM it is causing our demand (sales orders) to go on credit hold. Also MRP type VM doesn't seem to be creating planned orders as expected.

MRP does not change sales orders at all and it does not carry out any kind of credit check on the sales orders. I suggest you to open a thread on the SD space so that the sales experts can tell you if there is any SD customizing dependent on the MRP type which may affect the credit check.
Regarding the MRP type, as it was already explained, it's a reorder point MRP type based on forecast. You cannot expect to have planned orders created for each requirement, such as when using MRP type PD.
If you don't know exactly how VM works or if you are not using forecast, you may use a simpler reorder point MRP type, such as VB or even the classic PD.
