You've run yourself into split brain which precluded normal DRBD recovery and synchronization. You shouldn't have to intervene manually to initiate resync, it should all happen automagically. Or you did this as a pointless exercise after DRBD had already recovered. Look for "Split-Brain detected, dropping connection" messages in your logs, check what the User's Guide has to say about preventing split brain, and fix your setup.
