After few investigation we have noticed that the Guest OS was selected in the VM level as other , while the VMs which is recovered without any issue was in proper OS family.Issue got resolved and able to recover once we edited the  VM to the proper OS.

Interesting part is same VMs were success during our last year DR-Test and it was running VC6.0u3\SRM6.1.1 and upgraded now to VC6.5u2\SRM6.5.I think something might have changed in the 6.5 version which required Guest-OS details to be placed properly ..
