A good test for this is to send Command 17 with a different message prior to running UALU005. 

The test sends Command 17 with the following contents: 0x000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000. 

If the test administrator manually sends Command 17 with 0x000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 and then runs the test case, the test will change the configuration and then the counter must update during the test.
