This is not generally a version problem, except maybe for the
performance side effects of various versions. It's probably actually a
size problem. Bitmap operations on a 527 TB volume take some time to be
processed, and some operation probably blocks one of the DRBD kernel
threads long enough to cause DRBD to be too slow to answer a DRBD PING
request from its peer.

There is an option "ping-timeout" (in the "net" section, the value being
in tenth of a second) that can be adjusted to change the ping timeout.
