That may be because you got one of your colocation rules upside down ;)

order apps_after_fs inf: fs apps
order fs_app_after_drbd_app inf: ms_drbd_app:promote fs:start
order fs_data_after_drbd_data inf: ms_drbd_data:promote fs:start

colocation fs_app_on_drbd_app inf: fs ms_drbd_app:Master
colocation fs_data_on_drbd_data inf: fs ms_drbd_data:Master

Those are ok.

colocation fs_with_apps inf: fs apps

But this one is wrong:
You don't colocate the file system with the apps.
But you colocate the apps with the file system.

There is a difference between "rsc" and "with-rsc".
You cannot place the file system relative to apps,
if apps depend on fs.


So make that
colocation apps_with_fs inf: apps fs

Then these two should not be necessary:
colocation apps_on_drbd_app inf: apps ms_drbd_app:Master
colocation apps_on_drbd_data inf: apps ms_drbd_data:Master
