A bit more detailed explanation:

As you can see in the "udevadm info" dump, there is a sda device (
CT1000MX500SSD1) with a partition sda1, sda2, sda3, sda4, sda5, sda6

Then there is a sdb device (SAMSUNG_HD103SJ) with a partition sdb1

Then there is a sdc device (SAMSUNG_HD103SJ) with a partition sdc1

Then there is a sdd device (CT1000MX500SSD1) with a partition sdd1, 
sdd2, sdd3, sdd4, sdd5, sdd6.

I assume this is the copy of your master disk.
As you can see, the kernel switched the ordering of sdb with sdd.
Hardware probing is no longer asynchronous, so you can't rely on your 
2nd CT1000MX500SSD1 disk to show up as /dev/sdb. The Linux kernel simply 
doesn't work this way anymore.

My recommendation to use nofail/noauto won't really help in this case 
(it is more for USB disks which aren't always attached and you don't 
want to make the boot fail because the device is not plugged in).

The only thing that will help is to use UUIDs or LABELs (and to make 
sure they are "unique", i.e. the second disk is not an exact clone of 
the first one.
