This is (hopefully) a really silly question, but you are using a  
different local port on the backup server for each device, aren't you?

The other issue you will have is that with 15 production servers  
(guessing from the 500Go/30Go) hitting a single spindle to do the  
initial sync, your backup server is going to be hammered.

I'd suggest setting up a single mirror on the backup server first, get  
that in sync, and then stop drbd and restart with 2 to allow the  
second to sync.  This will allow you to work through the setup one at  
a time to find any issues, as well as let the disk drive sync one  
mirror at a time.
