comment How can it be that mounting and unmounting takes hours to complete?
Then I'm thinking that your controller has some issues, you should investigate controller logs and eventually check for failed I/O requests or similar in kernel logs

There might be pending SCSI reservations on the disks which are preventing the unmounts.

DRBD over an Internet connection is bad, once you fill the send buffer on the master, it will block any I/O until the buffer is empty (even if using the async mode).

It's probably a hardware problem, it may be related to the disk or the controller itself.
