io_search_array listing a device files which does not exists !!!

If I issue "ioscan -m dsf" command on HP-UX 11.31 host, it lists only 2 device files as shown below.

/dev/rdisk/my_disk3      /dev/rdsk/c16t0d7  

/dev/rdisk/disk1         /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0

 

But when I tried to query them programatically via io_search_array, this is trying to fetch one more devide file as /dev/rdisk/disk1017 !! I can't find this disk ( disk1017 ) from /dev/rdisk also.

 

Because of this, my other queries like io_mkdev is failing and the program is crashing. Any idea from where io_search_array is getting this extra device file?
