Symptoms

An error is encountered when creating a SP Meter Event record using the ServicePointMeterEvent_DTO. The error indicates that the Meter Configuration of the input Meter Read is not the same as the Meter Configuration of it's SP Meter History parent record. During further investigation, it was found that the COBOL program CIPMSMER needs to check if the input Meter Read record has same Meter Configuration Id as the SP Meter Installation History record.

ERROR

The removal meter read must be for the specified Meter Configuration.
The read taken at the time the meter was removed must be for the same meter configuration specified for this installation.

To correct this error, either:
Pick meter read for the specified meter configuration; or
Add a new meter read.



The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1.Create a Removal Meter Read using the SP Meter History Meter Configuration.
2.Update the SP Meter History with the Removal Meter Read above.
3.Create a Removal SP Meter History Event using the removal meter read id as the Meter Read Id.
4.Run the code online.
