anaconda tar with iscsi target crash

Description of problem:
Boot the installer,and click into "Manual Partitioning" page,create some partitions,then come back to "Installation Destination"page,and click "Add a disk",add a fcoe or iscsi disk,and click into "Manual Partitioning" page,
and made some partitions,you will see the crash after click"Begin installation".
I've reproduced this crash many times,but failed to make the reports due to#1869126.Please note that as said in #1868577,anaconda will crash no matter you create or not create partitions on the added disk.

Comment 3 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2020-08-17 04:44:04 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 33-beta by Fedora user lnie using the blocker tracking app because:

 This seems affects :
When using the guided partitioning flow, the installer must be able to: 
Complete an installation using any combination of disk configuration options it allows the user to select

Comment 4 Geoffrey Marr 2020-08-17 23:12:51 UTC
Discussed during the 2020-08-17 blocker review meeting: [0]

The decision to classify this bug as a "RejectedBlocker (Beta)" was made as we do not believe this violates the Beta criteria (the cited criterion refers to "guided partitioning" but the bug involves using custom partitioning, and network storage devices are only in the Final criteria). There is some support for making this a Final blocker but not clear enough to accept it yet.

> 03:52:26,620 WARNING org.fedoraproject.Anaconda.Modules.Storage:gi.overrides.BlockDev.LVMError: Failed to call the 'PvCreate' method on the '/com/redhat/lvmdbus1/Manager' object: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Python.dbus.exceptions.DBusException: ('com.redhat.lvmdbus1.Manager', 'PV /dev/sda1 Already exists!')

This seems to be a problem in the storage library. Reassigning.
