Hi Eric,

I am wondering, are you running drbd in physical hosts, or vitual machines?

I am in a worse situation with the same version of drbd, installed in
two up to date Centos 7 virtual machines running in an OpenStack pike
environment, with the same version of drbd installed from the elrepo

[root at drbd1 ~]# rpm -qa | grep kmod-drbd

I configured this environment last week Thursday, and believe it or
not, as of today sync is at 0.1%:

[root at drbd1 ~]# cat

Whatever I did, did not help, so finally I replicated the environment
in my laptop, in a VMware Workstation 11 environment, using the same
version of drbd, and in this case I have no issues.

This is my first experience with drbd, so I do not know how to
troubleshoot. Now I am thinking to look into older 8.x version, that
might be working better.
