Do you have ecc memory?

How old are your drives?
Do you scrub the raids? 
How reliable is your drbd setup? Does drbd even sync raid fixes?
Do you have networking issues?

Connect a hdd directly and use that for a few accounts, do you still have the problem? I will bet not.

Why do you have this bare metal? Do you need performance? Otherwise switch to reliable storage that is a bit less performing. You will get headaches from these multiple drbd setups.
