ECE customerUpdater is not starting because of having product cycle End_t less then Start_t. These dates get updated at BRM during product cancellation [ before canceling product, cycle start was set as a future date (365 days) and end was null].

ECE customerUpdater should start properly or cycle start_t should be corrected while canceling the product.

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

I ) Configure RODOD stack with 2 phase billing

Step 1 - SyncCustomer - Create account in BRM
Step 2 - Initiate Billing - Create service [use MODIFY_CUSTOMER BRM opcode] and purchase products/discounts with start date = Virtual_time + 365 days
Step 3 - Fulfill Billing - Calls SET_PRODINFO and SET_DISCOUNTINFO to set the product and discount validity to Order completion date Or Calls Cancel Product for undo scenarios

II ) Create Customer in RODOD (Siebel)
  - SyncCustomer task completed
III ) Create Order to purchases a promotion (Service + product) with due date as 5 days from current date
  - InitiateBilling task completed i.e. Service created, products purchased with start date = current date +365 days
IV ) Cancel the in-flight order.
  - Fulfill billing task completed i.e. The product will be cancelled effective from current date.
  Note: Now the Cancelled product End_t is set to current date where as Start_t is still set to future date (+365)
V ) Start ECE and Load config, pricing etc.
VI ) Load customer data with customerUpdater
  - customerUpdater process is failing due to validation error stating that start date is greater then end date.
  - This is not leading ECE to come to UsageProcessing State.
