MetaMotionR cannot be discovered in Ubuntu virtual machine

I am trying to connect a MetaMotionR device to an Ubuntu 11.10 VirtualBox VM with BlueZ 4.96. VM discovers other bluetooth devices such as an Android 9 phone (using C function hci_inquiry ) but cannot discover the MMR. The host machine (Ubuntu 16.04, BlueZ 5.37) discovers and connects to the MMR without problem. What can be the cause of this problem? Is there any way to discover and connect the device without using the MetaWear SDK on the VM?

Thanks in advance.

    Update your BlueZ library to the same version as the host machine.

    These boards are Bluetooth Le, which isn't supported in BlueZ 4.
