Go to the properties of each Mailbox DB and check the Client Settings tab to see if a public folder is defined, if not then browse to it and see if it fixes the errors.

Then the next thing I would look at is to see if the Free/Busy PF's were actually created, open the Exchange Management Shell and run "Get-PublicFolder Identity "\NON_IPM_SUBTREE\SCHEDULE+ FREE BUSY" Recurse".  You should see folders listed as  "\NON_IPM_SUBTREE\SCHEDULE+ FREE BUSY".   If receive an error then you'll need to create them.  If you download the document for the Microsoft Transporter Suite it has a section that will show you how to create the needed folders.

If it solves your problem good, if not - note that "simply moving the cluster to the passive node and then back again fixes this problem".
