I only include one role in the other. I don't see how that makes an infinite/dead loop. I don't include each role in each other.

Take the roles out of the run list so they are only recipes. Everything runs ok. Include one role in the other and run _one_ role, I get the hash error.

It seems more like chef cannot handle loading a sub-role.

Both roles run independently alone, but when I add one role to the run_list of the other I receive a Hash error.

role[yum-server] fails to run as it is calling role[minidnsmaster] with this error:

Error expanding the run_list:

Unexpected Error:

I can see somewhere combining the JSON hashes is failing.

Any ideas?
